‘Houdini’ goat caught after escaping capture in Washington Twp.

WASHINGTON TOWNSHIP, NJ (Warren County) – A goat that escaped its first capture was eventually caught again in Washington Township and now the goat has been dubbed “Houdini.”

According to Washington Township Police, there was a report of a loose goat running around in the township on Thursday . The Animal Control Officer made multiple attempts to capture the furry fugitive and finally enlisted the help of Peter DeBoer the Township Administrator.

Together, this dynamic duo were able to capture the goat and secure him, or so they thought, police said.

A short time later police began receiving calls for “another” loose goat running about, police said.

The goat was described, suspiciously, as having a lasso around its neck and turned out to be the same goat. The tireless Animal Control Officer then responded back to the area, this time enlisting the help of Officer Overko, police said.

“They were able to once again capture the goat, who was subsequently named ‘Houdini’, and secure this “baaaaad” goat in a police vehicle,” police said.

The goat was then transported to Dr. Blease’s barn uninjured for safekeeping, police said.
