NYPD Rescues Crying Pygmy Goat From Queens Backyard

"There’s a new GOAT in town, and it’s not @TomBrady...” the NYPD tweeted.

Tom Brady's got some b-a-a-a-a-d competition.

The New York Police Department said officers rescued a crying pygmy goat that had wandered into a backyard in Queens last week.

"There’s a new GOAT in town, and it’s not @TomBrady...” the NYPD tweeted.

The NYPD shared a video of an officer holding the crying kid in her arms. She can be heard saying to the animal, "It's OK. He's so cute."

There’s a new GOAT in town, and it’s not @TomBrady...it’s a ?!

When @NYPD113Pct officers stumbled upon this crying kid, they knew exactly what to do! Josh is currently eating lots of hay with @NYCACC before he heads off to an animal sanctuary.

Officers named the goat Josh and said he got a nice meal of hay after being rescued. Now, he's off to the Animal Care Centers of NYC, which works to find forever homes for abandoned animals.

He will then head to a New Jersey animal sanctuary, where comedian Jon Stewart and his wife sent a bull, which was headed for a slaughter house, that had escaped on a Queens street several years ago, the Associated Press reported.
