DES MOINES (AP) — Animal control officers in Des Moines used a tranquilizer to capture a goat that jumped into traffic and was on the run for hours.
The goat got a taste of freedom Wednesday morning as she evaded capture. The brown and white animal with floppy ears ran into traffic and eventually went into a fenced car dealership.
Officials said the goat appears to be healthy and uninjured. Authorities are looking for her owner.
Last week, animal control workers in Des Moines took into custody a 200-pound pot-bellied pig that had spent weeks on the loose in a neighborhood.
