Goats wrangled inside Four Corners' laundromat

KIRTLAND, N.M. - From Idaho to New York, goats around the country are going wild.


From escaping an enclosure in Boise, Idaho for a neighborhood snack tour, to roaming along the tracks of a New York City subway rail line, the goats have been on the go.

Goats in the Four Corner were also out causing havoc this week.

"Keep's the day interesting you know," San Juan County Sheriff Deputy Susie Chandler said

On Tuesday, the San Juan County Sheriff's Office was called to a laundromat in Kirtland to wrangle two goats that were bouncing around outside.

"They kind of took off a couple blocks down from their house I guess. So they took a trip," Chandler said.

According to authorities, it took about a half hour to get the two goats wrangled on leashes and brought home to their owner.

"Getting it on the black goat was pretty, it was good. No problems. But that little brown goat was quick. So we kind of had to corner him," Chandler said.

Apparently, a gate was left open, allowing the goats to get out.
