Police in the US mistook a goat for a man screaming out in pain.
A concerned resident of Putnam County, Florida, called officers in after hearing a man screaming for help, but when authorities went to investigate they discovered the cries were in fact coming from a goat that was tied to a fence.
"When I arrived, I spoke to the complainant. We could hear what appeared to be a man screaming for help in the direction of a residence on Jackson Passage, north of Edwards Lane,” Deputy Will Page wrote in the incident report.
"[I] went in that direction looking for the screamer. It was actually coming from a goat that was tied to a fence.”
"I spoke to the owner, who stated that he was going to take care of the goat. We then returned to the complainant and notified her that everything was ok."
