An Alabama sheriff’s deputy got the surprise of a lifetime when he returned to his car after delivering paperwork to find it had been hijacked by two mischievous and cute animals. Deputy Casey Thrower (aka the “GOAT” of his department) discovered that two miniature goats had taken over his police vehicle, one standing on the roof while the other scouting the car, munching on its precious paperwork. Thrower videotaped the entire incident and can be heard trying desperately to save the paperwork (and the car roof) from damage. Here’s what happened and exactly how the goats broke in.
Deputy Thrower returned to his car to find the marauding little goats making themselves at home in his vehicle. The video he took of the incident is hilarious, not only because the goats are so cute, but also because Thrower sounds genuinely frustrated at his paperwork being destroyed. ‘Get out of there. Are u kidding me? Go away!’ he can be heard pleading with the cheeky goats. “There’s nothing to eat there. Don’t eat that. Come on… Don’t eat that! Get out! Get out! Are you crazy?” Keep reading to see the video.
Madison County Sheriff’s Office posted about the goat invasion on their Facebook page, along with the video itself. Here’s a little funny Friday humor to lighten up your evening. While you’re out on patrol, nothing is considered routine: This morning, while delivering the civil papers, Deputy Casey Thrower returned to his patrol car to take a eager – and hungry – suppose to find GOATS Deputy Casey Thrower was serving civil papers in the county this morning when he heard something in his patrol car and was met by a pair of goats, one climbing into the open driver’s side of his vehicle and one on the hood of his patrol vehicle. animals were screaming around in the vehicle while munching on some paperwork.”
Goats climbing on top of cars isn’t uncommon, but how did you get into it? “Deputy pitcher explained that because of the number of homes he visits on a daily basis, he sometimes leaves the door of his vehicle open because he had to retreat in the past only to have been attacked by dogs,” the sheriff’s office explains.
Deputy Thrower eventually managed to chase the goats away and get back into his vehicle. There is no information on how much damage was done to his paperwork. “Deputy Thrower has been serving the citizens of Madison County for about 40 years and is considered one of our GOAT deputies,” the Sheriff’s Office said. “We got a huge kick out of it today and hope it brought a smile to your face too.”
Goats make good pets, although people who keep them need to make sure they can’t escape their enclosure (which is obvious how those miniature goats got into the police car). “Although traditionally considered farm animals, goats also make good pets,” says Lianne McLeod DVM. A perennial favorite in petting zoos, their curious and friendly nature makes them fun companions. There are over 300 different goat breeds, but the dwarf or dwarf goat varieties are usually kept as pets. Goats are one of the oldest domesticated species out there. world, and they are still raised for their milk, meat, fur and skin.Goats are herd animals, so they need at least one goat partner, and they need a large enclosed yard to roam in. For these reasons, goats have require a high level of care.”
