It’s a classic tale of goats find bridge, goats climb bridge, goats get stuck.

That’s what happened when two goats had to be rescued from the beam of a bridge in Pennsylvania, US.

The goats became stranded 50ft over the Mahoning River in Lawrence County.

According to a Facebook post from rescuers at Pennsylvania Turnpike toll road, they had escaped from a local farm and took shelter from the rain on the 8-inch (20cm) ledge.
