Have you ever looked a goat in the eyes? Those empty, creepy things are the Devil’s CCTV. An evil goat proved this point earlier this week by committing a despicable crime, but, although it definitely deserved it, for some inexplicable reason, police in Oakland, Maine did not press charges against it.

“You never really know what you are going to encounter when responding to a call of a woman being chased down a street,” the Oakland Police Department posted on its Facebook page Sunday morning. “Will it be nothing, will you be getting into a physical altercation? Well, this suspect was a little bit of both.”


Officer Jacob Earle responded to the call around 9 a.m. Sunday, according to a secretary at the department. It took some effort to subdue that spawn of evil, officials said.

“(Earle) tried his freshly certified de-escalation skills, but to no avail,” the Facebook post continued. “Despite assaulting our officer a few times the suspect was ultimately restrained.”

The goat was returned to its owner by 9:15 a.m. and the woman it chased said she will not press charges.
