A goat that escaped its home in Augusta Township has been reunited with its thankful owners.
Members of the North Grenville Detachment of the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) were on patrol on Monday, May 9, when officers spotted some neighbours attempting to corral the animal on County Road 26.
The helpful neighbours managed to prevent the goat from running out on the roadway and police were able to locate the owner nearby.
It also turned out the goat had yet to be named, so in a Twitter post, the OPP asked the public to help come up with a moniker.
That turned into a case of ask and you shall receive, as people have been taking to Twitter to post their name ideas.
Some of those names include Rebel, Billy the Kid, Felon, Baaaandit!, Roady, Grenville, Auggie, Highway Patrol, Skippy and Bad to the Bone.
