No kidding: Goat takes over Georgia deputy’s patrol car, eats paperwork

DOUGLAS COUNTY, Ga. — A Georgia sheriff’s deputy found herself on the horns of a dilemma. In the end, an animal got her goat.

The deputy, a member of the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office, was serving legal papers at a residence west of Atlanta, according to the sheriff’s office’s Facebook page.

She left her squad car door open because she has had to run back to the vehicle because of dogs, the sheriff’s office said.

When she returned, the deputy found a goat in the front seat of the patrol car, contentedly munching on paperwork, WBRC reported.

“Get out. Go. Come on,” the deputy said, slapping the immovable goat on its rear in an attempt to get the animal to move. The deputy ran from one side of the patrol car to the other, opening doors and attempting to coax the goat out of the car.

On its Facebook page, the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office included a video but warned readers there was “some mild cursing.”

“If you are easily offended, please keep scrolling,” the sheriff’s office wrote.

Warning: This video contains mild profanity

Here is a little Friday humor to help lighten the mood. * WARNING* Before watching the video please understand that there is some mild cursing and if you are easly offended please keep scrolling. To explain what you are about to see, the deputy went to a residence to serve some civil papers. The deputy explained that due to the number of houses she visits daily, she routinely leaves her vehicle's door open because she has had to reteat on a number of occasions from vicious dogs. Never once did she expect or even consider what was about to happen this day! Eventhough she was knocked to the ground she was not physically harmed in the incident. At the end of the day we all got a little laugh out of it and we hope you do as well!
