WESTON (CBS) –WBZ-TV photographers encounter any number of odd happenings during the course of their work week.

On Wednesday, while shooting a segment for Gardening with Gutner at Lands Sake Farm in Weston, veteran shooter Rick Macomber ran into a little trouble.

An overly rambunctious kid (of the goat species), which the web staff has now aptly nicknamed “Todd Goatner,” proved to be a bit of an obstacle.

“This baby goat was chewing my shorts while I was shooting,” Macomber tweeted.

It’s unclear whether the real Todd Gutner stepped in to help out.

Macomber was later quoted on Twitter as telling co-workers, “never thought I’d see the day when a goat actually ate my shorts!”

Fortunately for all, no goats or WBZ-TV photographers were injured filming the segment, which is scheduled to air next week.

In the meantime, members of the web staff are pushing to have the name of next week’s segment changed to “Gardening With Goatner.”
