About 200 rogue goats took over a California neighborhood this week after they escaped from their enclosure, video of the wild episode shows.
The invaded an east San Jose neighborhood Tuesday evening after one of them somehow tapped an electric fence while munching on flowers, local resident Terry Roelands told KNTV.
Then the boards on the fence broke, setting the goats loose, Roelands said.
“I’m dead,” Roelands’ son Zach tweeted. “When I got back from the store all the goats had broken through the fence and were [wreaking] havoc on our street.”
“This is the craziest thing to happen all quarantine,” he added.
Zach told The Mercury News the goats were rounded up quickly, but munched on neighbors’ potted plants during their jailbreak and left behind a trail of droppings.
Terry Roelands told KNTV the hill behind his home caught on fire about 15 years ago and since then, goats are used a few times each year to eat their way through the brush.
