ATLANTA (WSAV) – A herd of goats was on the loose in Atlanta’s Buckhead Monday.

According to WXIA, nearly two dozen goats roamed near a Rooms To Go Furniture store on Piedmont Road until an animal transportation trailer began loading the livestock around 1 p.m.

The Atlanta Police Department issued the following statement to WXIA while the goats were still out:

Animal Control has responded to the scene and the owner of the goats has also been contacted and is en route to remove them from the area. No injuries reported at this time as the investigation continues.

Police responded to the scene after a driver called to report the goats were wandering in the road.

They had been brought in to eat weeds behind a nearby Kroger supermarket but somehow got free, according to police.
