MANKATO, Minn. (AP) - Mankato police probably never expected to get a call like this.
The 911 caller said two young girls, dressed in their pajamas, were out for a walk with a goat about 11:30 p.m. Saturday. The girls told the responding officer that the goat lived in their bedroom closet and that they regularly took it out for late-night walks.
The officer walked the girls and goat home to talk to the parents. The girls, both under the age of 10, had been at a birthday party at the Sibley Park Zoo earlier that day and had come up with a plan to take one of the goats home.
The Free Press (http://bit.ly/qB0qd4) says police don't know how the girls managed to free the goat.
