Goat curry anyone?
On Thursday, NYPD officers captured a frightened goat trying to escape a parking lot near Brooklyn, according to a Feb. 7 report by the New York Daily News. The feisty four-legged goat ran across the lot during a cold night in the Big Apple, and it appeared intimidated being chased by nearly a dozen police officers wearing bullet proof vests.
Typically, authorities pursue criminals on foot or via a car chase. But this was a different type of chase altogether.
The parking lot attendant, a native of West Africa, successfully corralled the animal and took control by holding on to its horns. Officers then proceeded to tie the goat's hooves with a long rope.
Ndiaye Seydou was a goat herder before immigrating to the United States. "They were trying to catch the goat, but had no idea how to do it," Seydou told reporters.
Police officers from the 77th precinct spotted the goat on a busy road near Brooklyn and feared that it may harm humans and motorists. (That's ironic considering that the goat probably fears humans as its prey.)
The animal was loaded unto a truck. According to the report, it will be shipped to a farm in upstate New York near Woodstock. Rescue workers claim that the goat won't be harmed and will be spared from the dreaded butcher's knife.
Yeah, right. If the butcher doesn't get to the goat, a snowstorm will.
