Why did the goat cross the road?
The Washington Township Police Department said police and Gloucester County Animal Control officers responded about 4:30 p.m. Sunday when a loose goat was reported wandering around a residential neighborhood.
The frightened goat fled down Lambs Road and the officers managed to guide the animal to a nearby wooded area.
“Normally goats are not too difficult to capture unless they are not socialized and/or scared,” William Lombardi, director of the Gloucester County Animal Shelter, told the Courier Post newspaper. “This goat turned out to be very friendly, just scared.”
