Goat got its head stuck in a fence

Police were called to a rural address in the west end early evening on January 27 when a resident heard what he believed was a child calling for help. All the complainant could say was the sound was coming from a wooded area in the north end of his property.

Officers searched in the dark but didn’t hear anything, nor did they find a child in distress. They went to check with neighbouring houses and at one residence, spoke with a woman who could account for all three of her children.

Her husband came in while police were there and reported his goat had been screaming earlier. When he checked, he found the animal with its head stuck in the fence. The farmer said the sound could be mistaken for a child screaming. He led the officers to the area and sure enough, it was exactly where the complainant reported the sound coming from.

All kidding aside, police are reminding residents to report suspicious activity immediately so we can check it out. It’s always better to be safe than sorry.
