NORFOLK, Va. (March 29, 2016) – It didn’t take them long to get their goat, and it looks like the critter enjoyed the pursuit.

The Norfolk Police Department posted a photo of a goat that appeared to be smiling after animal control officers caught him last week.

On Thursday afternoon, a couple noticed the goat wandering around while they picked up their child from school. When animal control officers Adam Blankenship and Nicholas Calnan arrived, the goat scampered away.

They caught the goat after a brief chase and captured the amusing photo.

“No charges will be filed against the goat! He was just enjoying the springtime weather,” the department wrote in its post. “Nicely done Animal Control!”
