According to the Canadian police, screams coming out of the woods in a rural area of Ottawa were thought to be a screaming child but it turned out to be a bleating goat that was having a “bad day.”
CBC reported, the police responded to call last week who said they heard a child screaming for help near their property in the woods.
The police for the child in the dark but couldn’t find anything until they knocked on a neighbor’s door who accounted for her three children. Her husband told the authorities that “his goat had been screaming earlier.”
The farmer had found his goat stuck his head in the fence. He said, “the sound could be mistaken for a child screaming,” the officers investigated and concluded: “Sure enough, it was exactly where the complainant reported the sound coming from.”
“All kidding aside, police are reminding residents to report suspicious activity immediately so we can check it out,” officers said. “It’s always better to be safe than sorry.”
