NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – NYPD officers found a goat wandering the streets of the Bronx.

The animal was spotted near East 132nd Street and Locust Avenue.

Police believe it escaped from a nearby slaughterhouse.

Officers brought the goat to the Animal Care Centers of New York City. After a checkup, it was sent to Skylands Sanctuary and Animal Rescue in Wantage, New Jersey.

Last week, police rescued a lamb from the Gowanus Expressway in Brooklyn.
