DOUGLASVILLE, Ga. (AP) - A Georgia sheriff's deputy delivering civil papers returned to her patrol vehicle to find an eager - and hungry - new driver.

The Douglas County deputy was serving the documents near Douglasville last week when she heard something in her patrol car and was met by a goat climbing into the open driver's side.


The animal clamored around, munched on some paperwork and knocked over a drink before managing to bump the deputy to the ground.

The sheriff's office explained in a Facebook post on Friday that the deputy often leaves the door open on such calls in case she has to make a quick escape from aggressive dogs - but she never considered having to retreat from an agitated goat.

Officials said the deputy was not physically harmed during the encounter - and she managed to retrieve the soggy paperwork before the animal scampered off.
