he needed a nap.  Yes, he’s a goat.  This is not his home.

It’s nuts when your teen gets home from school and finds the family pet dog in the driveway only to find the sliding glass door shattered.  Luckily, Jennifer Keathley has a sense of humor.

Logan Keathley crept through his own house and, according to his mother, Jennifer, the first thing he noticed was the smell. He soon found the perpetrator asleep in the bathroom: a large goat.

Mom calls the local sheriff office.  Hurray, they came to the rescue…

At one point, the goat turned around and ran back into the bathroom. Eventually, the two deputies each grabbed a horn and managed to lead the goat outside and into the German Shepard’s cage.

Apparently, Big Boy had left home a week prior.  Once Mrs. Keathley posted the proverbial anyone missing some livestock on Facebook, the owner came forward.

Eventually, the goat was returned to his owner, Andrew Watkins, on New London Eastern Road. “Big Boy” had made it over three miles from home after escaping almost a week prior.

“He’s never done anything like that before,” said Watkins. “I think he was drinking too much that night. I’m really sorry it happened but there wasn’t much I could do. I wasn’t there.”

The goat was not injured and the damage was confined mostly to the back door area. The goat did urinate profusely on the first floor of the home, most likely because it is currently breeding season. The dog was not injured either.

“My house definitely smells like a goat farm,” said Keathley. “But there’s nothing you can do but laugh.”

Thank goodness Mr. Watkins carries livestock insurance!
