Two goats 'attack' police car on Isle of Wight

Have you seen these 'kids' ? Image Credit: Twitter / Isle of Wight Police
Police in the UK have launched a tongue-in-cheek appeal for information on the unlikely suspects.
The bizarre incident occurred on Tuesday when officers on the Isle of Wight - which is situated off the coast of England - attended the discovery of an unexploded World War II mortar shell near Newport.

After leaving their car unattended, it quickly became an impromptu climbing frame for two young goats which turned up and started clambering all over the vehicle's roof, causing minor damage.

An image of the animals caught in the act has since gone viral on social media and the Isle of Wight Police has issued a tongue-in-cheek 'witness appeal' for more information on the culprits.

"Unfortunately whilst at an incident on the outskirts of Newport yesterday, a couple of 'kids' caused damage to one of our police vehicles," the post reads.
"If you recognize the offenders from the photo please let us know..."

The incident ended up producing a slew of goat-related puns on Facebook and Twitter.

When I was a teenager our family had a boarding kennel and across from the kennel was a corral with 3 goats. The previous owners had kept dogs in that corral and the dogs had dug a tunnel we didn't know about because the leaves of a big tree kept it covered. The goats found it and would crawl out under the fence run around the kennel to get the dogs barking and then crawl back in. By the time we came out to see why the dogs were barking they would be back in the corral eating leaves and looking innocent. We blamed the mule who was in the next field and knew how to open the gate, but it st... [More]

It's better to be 'attacked' by the goats, than by the angry swans!

Looks like the Boers haven't quite given up the fight.

Geese are really nasty too. I had friends that had geese and they were better than a watchdog.
