A curious goat hopped into a Georgia patrol car last week — to munch on documents, spill a drink and eventually head-butt a cop to the ground. It was all captured on bodycam footage.
The Douglas County Sheriff’s Office shared the video on Facebook. According to the post, an on-duty sheriff’s deputy, who remains unidentified, was serving civil papers at the time of the encounter.
She had left the car door open. Moments later, a new (and uninvited) passenger arrived.
“Due to the number of houses [the deputy] visits daily, she routinely leaves her vehicle’s door open because she has had to [retreat] on a number of occasions from vicious dogs,” the sheriff’s office wrote.
“Never once did she expect or even consider what was about to happen this day!”
As the deputy knocks on the house’s door, she’s heard saying, “I hope that goat don’t get in my car.”
Seconds after, she laughs and says, “Oh [expletive], he’s eating the paper.”
The deputy hurries back to the car, trying to nudge the goat from the front seat while fighting for papers in its mouth.
When the furry creature finally exits the vehicle — leaving chewed-up documents and a beverage that’s no longer contained to the cup holder — it knocks her to the ground with its head.
The deputy was uninjured, the sheriff’s office said.
“[Although] she was knocked to the ground she was not physically harmed in the incident,” the sheriff’s office said. “At the end of the day we all got a little laugh out of it and we hope you do as well!”
