New York police rescue ‘GOAT ... and it’s not @TomBrady’
NEW YORK (AP) — “There’s a new GOAT in town, and it’s not @TomBrady...”
That’s what the New York Police Department tweeted after rescuing a crying pygmy goat that had mysteriously wandered into a Queens backyard this past week.
Officers named it Josh and delivered it to a city animal shelter for a meal of hay.
Josh will soon go to the Skylands animal sanctuary in New Jersey, where Jon Stewart and his wife, Tracey, sent a bull headed to a slaughterhouse that escaped on a Queens street three years ago.
In a video police released Friday, an officer is seen cradling the goat in her arms, saying, “It’s OK. ... He’s so cute.”
And no, it’s not Brady, whose nickname, GOAT, stands for the “greatest of all time.”
This story has been updated to correct a name spelling to Tracey instead of Tracy, and to correct the timing of the bull escape to three years ago, instead of two.
