This one just sounds so surreal! How the hell did they get away with this for so long?
Everything went according to plan for two pajama-clad stepsisters who took a goat for a late-night walk. That was until a curious police officer stopped to question them following a 911 call.
The Mankato police officer stopped the two girls at about 11:30 p.m. Saturday. When asked about the goat, they said that the animal lived in their bedroom closet.
The stepsisters, ages 6 and 7, said they regularly took the goat out for late-night walks because Dad didn’t know their mother had bought it two weeks earlier.
The unconvinced officer walked the girls home, where their parents explained they’d attended a birthday party at the Sibley Park Zoo earlier that day. That’s when they hatched a plan to take one of the goats home.
Police are clueless as to how the girls freed the goat, which was returned to the Minnesota zoo.
