Goats removed from Conn. high school roof overhang

Firefighters were called to a Connecticut high school for a goat removal.

Authorities say firefighters rescued four goats from an overhang above the entrance to Simsbury High School on Wednesday morning. They say the goats may have been placed there as a senior prank.

Principal Neil Sullivan says the goats were discovered by a custodian at about 5:30 a.m. No injuries were reported.

After being taken down, the pygmy goats were brought to Flamig Farm in West Simsbury. Officials are trying to find their rightful owner.

Sullivan says school officials are working with police to discover who put the goats on the overhang, but said they don't want to overreact to the incident.

    My brother in law used to own some goats and they used to get up on top of his barn and stand on the very top and eat pecan leaves that hung down on the barn. So those goats may have gotten up on the over hang by them selves.They are some sure footed animals.
