"There's a new GOAT in town, and it's not @TomBrady..."
That's what the NYPD tweeted after rescuing a crying pygmy goat that had mysteriously wandered into a South Jamaica backyard on April 24.
Officers from the 113th Precinct named the goat Josh and delivered it to a city animal shelter for a meal of hay.
The 911 call about the goat described a “a vicious animal” near 140th Street and Sutter Avenue, the NYPD told the Eagle. Officers Leanna Palmer and Chris Spicer determined that Josh was in fact “not vicious.”
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."
