Runaway goat leads New Jersey police on 90-minute highway chase
A runaway goat on a New Jersey highway caused a four-car pileup Tuesday after leading police on an hour-and-a-half chase across a major highway.
Now nicknamed “Sky” for the Tuesday’s episode on the Pulaski Skyway, the goat has been turned over to a rescue farm in Wantage, New Jersey, according to The Jersey Journal.
But for a little while there, it didn’t look good for Sky as she was jumping over the highway’s divider and leaping atop cars trying to dodge police.
Authorities still have no idea how Sky found herself on the Pulaski Skyway, NJ.com noted, but she does have a USDA tag. While unharmed through the incident, it’s likely that she was on her way to a slaughterhouse and somehow escaped.
Officials said that if nobody comes forward to claim the goat, she’ll likely live on at the rescue farm until dying of old age.
