BELFAST, Maine (AP) — Police in Maine have picked up some adorable intruders after two miniature goats escaped from their home and wandered the streets.
A Belfast police officer responded Sunday morning to find the pygmy goats in a woman’s garage. They had been snacking on cat food. Officer Daniel Fitzpatrick used a cat leash to lead them into his squad car.READ MORE: State Health Officials Looking To Increase Vaccinations In Kids Ahead Of School Reopening

Fitzpatrick called the runaways “good company” and joked about adding patrol goats to the next police budget.MORE NEWS: Harvard Professor Launches New Search For Extraterrestrial Life
