Deputies Called to Break Up Brawling Goats

When duty calls, police officers have to show up regardless of the situation. Florida deputies responded to a 911 call about a “fight in progress” only to arrive to find a pair of feuding goats.

The Putnam County Sheriff’s Office wrote in a Facebook post that their deputies were called to a residential neighborhood in Palatka, Florida, where a resident had reported a “fight in progress.” When officials arrived on the scene, they discovered that it was actually a pair of goats butting heads.

“The suspects were pretty maaaadd at one another and the fight escalated into the yards of nearby residences,” the post said. “Both were pretty hard-headed, but officers managed to separate, wrangle and bring them to the Putnam County Jail.”

Fortunately, the goats were able to be separated from one another without causing any injuries. The sheriff’s office also said that deputies were later able to make contact with the owner of the escaped goats to return them back to their home.
