Escaped Oklahoma City goat charges police, resident

An Oklahoma City man thought someone was breaking into his house, only to find the intruder had four legs and horns.

"I heard some rumbling, and I freaked out. I thought that somebody was trying to break into the house, and then I came out here and checked it. Then I see it coming towards me, so I run back inside," said Edgar Cardoza.

He first thought it was a burglar, so he called 911.  Using its big horns, the goat was trying to get inside Cardoza's house.

"First, somebody called and said that there was a goat running around the neighborhood.  As we were driving to it, the homeowner where the goat actually was called in to say that a ram was trying to beat down his front door," said Oklahoma City police Lt. Jeff Spruill.

Police arrived and were surprised with what they found.

"We got there. It wasn't a ram. It was a goat, but it was trying to beat down his front door," said Spruill.

Cardoza refused to come out of his house again and that's when the goat turned his attention to police, going after them and trying to get inside their police cars.

"It's pretty scary when it charges at you," said Cardoza.

Cardoza said his neighbor uses the goat as a guard dog.  The escaped goat is now back with its owner.
