STATESVILLE, N.C. (WBTV) - Several goats are home with their owners after tumbling off a truck in Statesville over the weekend.

Huntersville police say they received an “interesting” call about goats on Stumptown Road near Statesville Road. Three goats had apparently fallen from a cage on a truck and were wandering around in the roadway during the evening hours.

“Officers were able to safely capture the goats, I’m assuming by a bit a charming and chasing,” Huntersville police said.

The goats have since been returned safely to their owners.
