With the help of a hospital security guard, authorities captured this runaway goat in Brooklyn.

A goat was found running around the Bedford-Stuyvesant area of Brooklyn overnight, but was eventually captured by a nearby security guard who was a former goat herder in West Africa, according to media reports.

After several police officers tried to catch the animal, Seydou Ndiaye, who was at his job at Interfaith Medical Center, was able to grab the goat by the horns.

“I told them ‘Do not harm the animal, it’s an easy animal, it’s very friendly but it just was a little scared,” Ndiaye told CBS New York.

 The goat, which reportedly may have escaped from a nearby slaughterhouse, was taken to the ASPCA.
