Goat on the lam snarls traffic
JERSEYCITY, N.J. — Agoatbelieved to have escaped en route to aslaughterhouse snarled the morningcommute along one of the busiest road-ways in northern New Jersey onTuesday, leading police on a nearlytwo-hour chase.The small, chocolate brown femalewith curved horns eluded ﬁve JerseyCity police ofﬁcers for more than 90minutes by jumping back and forthover a central divider along the PulaskiSkyway, alternately disrupting trafﬁcalong both east and west-bound lanes,according to city spokesman StanEason.Trafﬁc was snarled from 7:10 a.m.until almost 9 a.m. along the elevatedroadway, which traverses the Passaicand Hackensack Rivers betweenNewark and Jersey City and carriesthousands of vehicles daily to theHolland Tunnel and into New York.Four vehicles, whose drivers wereattempting to avoid the zigzagginggoat, were involved in a minor acci-dent, police said. There were noinjuries.“Acall came in: `There was a motorvehicle accident, and there’s a goat run-ning around on the skyway,” Easonsaid, adding that Jersey City policewere not alarmed. “We had full-sizedbucked deer running around in themetropolis downtown of ExchangePlace about two years ago, before it jumped in the Hudson River and swamto Governor’s Island, so nothing sur-prises us,” he added.The frisky goat eventually tired,Eason said, and ofﬁcers were able toform a semi-circle around her and secureher in a noose.Ofﬁcials are still trying to determinewhere the goat came from. One of thegoat’s ears is tagged with a U.S.Department of Agriculture tag, indicat-ing the animal likely escaped a truckheaded to a slaughterhouse, Eason said.If no company claims the animal, it willbe moved to a rural animal welfare facil-ity that can accommodate livestock.“If it can survive running around thePulaski Skyway for two hours, and thenwinds up in a slaughterhouse, it’s kindof sad,” Eason said. “But if someoneclaims her, she is private property, sothere’s not much we can do.”
