    Goat That Escaped Slaughterhouse Found on Bronx Street

    A goat that escaped a slaughterhouse was found on a Bronx street.

    Police officers found the wayward white goat on Locust Avenue on Saturday morning. 

    Police brought the goat to Animal Care Centers, which gave it a quick medical check and turned it over to Skylands Animal Sanctuary in New Jersey. 

    It's been a busy week for farm animals going for a stroll on the wild side of New York City streets. On Wednesday, a young lamb was spotted running along the Gowanus Expressway during the morning rush hour. 

    The lamb was rescued by an off-duty U.S. Customs and Border Protection officer with help from the NYPD and "fellow New Yorkers," according to a tweet from CBP's New York field office's verified account.

    The lamb was also brought to Skylands where, perhaps, it can swap stories with the goat around the watering hole.
