Maine Police Decline To Press Charges Against Goat That Chased Woman Down Street

Oakland police dealt with a different kind of suspect over the weekend — a goat.

Police wrote on Facebook that they responded to a call of a goat chasing a woman down a street.

“You really never know what you are going to encounter when responding to a call of a woman being chased down the street. Will it be nothing, could you be getting into a physical altercation? Well this suspect was a little of both,” police wrote on Facebook.

An officer “restrained” the goat using “freshly certified de-escalation skills,” police wrote.

The goat was returned to its owner — and no charges were filed.
