Man calls 911 on goat after mistaking it for a burglar

Posted: Updated:
OKLAHOMA CITY - An Oklahoma City man thought someone was breaking into his house only to find the intruder had four legs and horns.  It was a goat and it was using its horns to try to get inside the man's house.

That's when he did the only thing he knew to do and called 911.

When police arrived, he refused to come out of his house again so the goat turned his attention to police- going after them and trying to get inside their police cars.

"If it were a burglar, a human burglar on their front porch, we know how to deal with that,” said Lt. Jeff Spruill of the Oklahoma City Police Dept.  “We're trained and equipped, but we don't know how to deal with a goat. We go deal with the things that nobody else wants to."

The man says his neighbor uses the goat as a type of guard dog or guard goat.  The goat is now back at home with its owner.
