Escaped goats, sheep invade Florida neighborhood
APOPKA, Fla. (WOFL FOX 35) - After seven hours on the loose, crews finally caught some goats and sheep that were running free in an Apopka, Florida neighborhood. Deputies surround their suspects using lassos.
Residents spotted the furry flock on Friday morning, grazing in some front yards.
"They're being well behaved I think they're real tired," said Michele Hettenbach. "We're just trying to keep them safe. We don't want them to run out and get hit. We don't want them to cause an accident and have someone else get hurt."
Deputies blocked the road to keep big trucks from coming through the area.
"We did stop a UPS truck from coming down so they wouldn't scare them away so that was good."
Deputies plan to look for the owner. The goats and sheep will be taken to a holding facility in Winter Garden.
