New York police rescue ‘GOAT … and it’s not @TomBrady’

  • NEW YORK CITY POLICE DEPARTMENT VIA AP / APRIL 24

    A New York City police officer holds a pygmy goat after it was found wandering around a backyard in the Queens borough of New York. Police brought the goat to a city animal shelter and it will be brought to the Skylands Sanctuary and Rescue in Wantage, N.J.

NEW YORK >> “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 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.”
