Pyjama kids: It's our escapegoat

Two young girls were found after 'rescuing' a goat from a US zoo
Two young girls were found after 'rescuing' a goat from a US zoo

Everything went according to plan for two pyjama-clad girls in the US who took a goat they had freed from a Minnesota zoo for a late-night walk.

That is, until they tried to kid a Mankato police officer who stopped them at about 11.30pm on Saturday that the animal lived in their bedroom closet.

The stepsisters, aged six and seven, said they regularly took the goat out for late-night walks because their father did not know their mother had bought it two weeks earlier.

The unconvinced officer walked the girls home, where their parents explained the girls had attended a birthday party at Sibley Park Zoo earlier that day - where they apparently hatched a plan to take one of the goats home.

The Free Press said police did not know how the girls freed the goat, which was returned to the zoo.
