SUPERIOR, Colo. (CBS4)– Deputies with the Boulder County Sheriff’s Office spent hours overnight trying to wrangle up some goats. The animals were supposed to be munching on open space thistle, but they took a little detour.

The goats ended up roaming the streets instead of eating invasive species of plants in Superior.

Several deputies spend the night rounding up the hungry guys and posted some pictures on Facebook. They said you never know what you might end up doing while on duty.
