ISLE OF WIGHT (HUFFINGTON POST) – Police officers on the Isle of Wight off the south coast of England launched a tongue-in-cheek appeal to find two young goats caught on camera clambering over a police car, according to multiple news outlets.
The kids jumped onto the roof of the vehicle last Tuesday as officers were dealing with the discovery of an unexploded mortar shell, dating from World War II, in a field outside the town of Newport.
“A couple of ‘kids’ caused damage to one of our police vehicles,” tweeted police. “If you recognise the offenders from the photo please let us know…”
Police later shared video to Facebook of the Royal Navy Explosives Team detonating the shell to remove the danger.
The picture of the goats, meanwhile, went viral and prompted plenty of puns in reply.
“Those pesky kids,” commented one person.
“Pranks, like this, really get my goat,” said another.
