HACKETTSTOWN, NJ (Warren County) – Dozens of goats and sheep broke loose and invaded a Hackettstown neighborhood Wednesday night.
Police were called to the Hackettstown Livestock Auction, located at 225 West Stiger St, shortly after 9:30 p.m.
According to police, an unsecured gate was pushed open allowing more than 75 goats and sheep to escape.
Approximately 50-60 of them were herded back into the pen by police and good samaritans. Police resecured the gate with a piece of rope, police said.

Time will tell if the rest of the escapees will be joining Fred who is a goat that reportedly escaped from the Hackettstown Livestock Auction over a year ago and has roamed Hackettstown at night with a group of deer. Hackettstown residents nicknamed the goat Fred.
