A German tourist couple visiting Austria had their hands full when a goat wouldn't stop attacking them.

To stop the butting, Steffen Prill was forced to grab the beast by the horns - and hold on.

Mr Prill said he literally dragged it down the mountain slope they were hiking on toward the Tyrollean village of Ausservillgraten, near the Italian border. He and Anja Buder, his wife, said that every time Mr Prill let go, the horned assaults continued.

Police called to the scene finally soothed the animal.

There were no serious injuries - and police said the goat's owner will have to pay for Ms Buder's ripped trousers.
