Police have captured five goats that were wandering the streets of a gritty northern New Jersey city.

Chief Animal Control Officer John DeCando tells The Record newspaper that a woman called Paterson police after nearly hitting the herd with her car at 2:30 a.m. Thursday.

Police took the goats to the animal shelter. They'll stay there until they are sent to a farm to live out their days.

DeCando says he believes someone was keeping them for an Easter meal or a sacrifice.

It's illegal to keep farm animals in Paterson.
