[ARCHIVED] - Get Your Goat: Four-Legged Landscapers Escape -

Issaquah police responded to possible baaaaaad behavior late July 17, 2016, after landscaping goats were apparently released in Issaquah Highlands.

Officers responded to Central Park at about 11:30 p.m. after callers reported loud noises in the area. Police located a box with several tubes for launching aerial fireworks.

While officers were at the park, several callers reported escaped goats near 24th Avenue Northeast and Central Park.

Officers located several of the wayward goats and contacted the shepherd, who was able to secure the loose goats.

The shepherd told police somebody unplugged the energizer to the electric fence and lowered a section of fence to let the goats out.

No damage was reported as a result of the incident.

Issaquah Highlands Community Association hired the goats to conduct summer landscaping.

If you have information about the incident, please call the Issaquah Police Department’s non-emergency line at 425-837-3200.
