Goat stolen and confined as part of high school senior prank

On the night of May 19, 2014, a ten year old goat named Heidi was stolen from her farm in Marlboro, Mass. The next morning she was found locked in a hallway at the Algonquin Regional High School in Northboro, according to WHDH.

In what appears to be a senior prank, Heidi was taken from her home and locked in a hallway near the girls' locker room overnight for unsuspecting students to stumble upon the following day. What happened next was more than was expected: a very angry goat charged the students who entered the building.

The local police are now involved since the individuals may face charges of breaking and entering, vandalism and theft. Many students think this crossed a line. Senior class president Patrick Kane spoke for his class when he said this type of action “does not represent Algonquin as a whole,” according to WHDH.

Cameras caught the perpetrators in action and they are urged to turn themselves in.

Northboro Animal control was able to round up Heidi, who was reunited with her owner. Heidi did not suffer any physical injuries.
