Police in Gresham, Oregon were out on patrol when they spotted an unusual sight: a goat perched on the roof of a house.

"That goat will charge you," warned a neighbor as two officers approached the house. The goat, they said, "only respects one man."

Police noticed the goat around 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, according to KPTV.. The officers reportedly heeded the neighbor's warning and kept their distance until the goat's owner returned home.

Together, they managed to rescue the 35-pound animal, which is two years old. Police speculate the goat had ascended to the roof by using a ramp.
