Goat leads Odessa cops on chase

March 1, 2010 11:08:36 AM PST
All over town ran a lone goat as Odessa police and animal control officers tried to catch the roaming animal. The report to police came in Saturday as a sheep on the loose. Officers then determined it was a goat loping through a Taco Bell parking lot, a park and the dorm area at the University of Texas-Permian Basin.

It took four police officers, two animal control officers and one off-duty police officer on motorcycle to corral the goat after about 30 minutes.

Animal control officers subdued the goat with a tranquilizer gun and took custody of it.

There was no immediate word on who owned the goat.
