ASHLAND COUNTY, OH - The Ashland County Sheriff's Office responded to a call of breaking and entering on October 4th, however, this call would prove to be different than others. 

The 911 caller stated she came home at Township Road 150 to find her sliding glass door broken with shards of glass scattered all across the floor. 

Deputies arrived on scene, and began a search of the house. Eventually, they located the primary suspect. 

It was a large goat, who was currently laying down in the bathroom of the residence. 

The goat refused to come out of the bathroom, and became combative when deputies told the goat to leave the residence. Deputies were able to restrain the goat, and escorted it outside. 

The homeowner states that nothing was stolen, however the goat caused some damage to the property. 

"He was just plain destructive and seemed a bit spiteful with a nasty temperament." The homeowner stated. 

Deputies believe a drop in temperatures is what caused the goat to seek shelter in the residence. 

The goat did not sustain any injuries, and was eventually released to its owner.
