You Have ‘Goat' to Be Kidding Me: 2 Goats Found Wandering Through Bucks County Neighborhood

Does it goat any weirder than this?

It sure seemed strange when a couple goats turned up in a Pennsylvania neigborhood.

According to a post on the Lower Southampton Township Facebook page, two goats were found wandering around a residential neighborhood in the early afternoon on Tuesday. With no tags or any indication of who the goats belonged to, officials turned to social media to solve the mystery. 

(function(d, s, id) { var js, fjs = d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0]; if (d.getElementById(id)) return; js = d.createElement(s); js.id = id; js.src = "//connect.facebook.net/en_US/sdk.js#xfbml=1&version=v2.3"; fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js, fjs);}(document, 'script', 'facebook-jssdk'));

It is never a boring day here in Lower Southampton Township!Do you know who these two characters belong to? If so,...

Locals were encouraged to share the post featuring two images of the goats, and after several hours with no phone calls or tips -- despite 62 shares -- the neighbor of the owners reached out to the woman who spotted them. "Goat mystery solved," the Lower Southampton Township Facebook page posted before later editing the post. "They were dumped by a family in Philadelphia." 

The post goes on to say that the neighbor had repeatedly called the Philadelphia SPCA on the family who owned the goats, to no avail. 

The owners of the goats were cited for cruelty following the incident, said the township.
