Got your goat?

Yes, but it took awhile.

Officers in Odessa, Texas, had to play goat roper the other day.

A lone goat was spotted roaming in a Taco Bell parking lot, a park and the dorm area at the local University of Texas campus.

Four police officers, two animal control officers and one off-duty police officer on a motorcycle got caught up in the goat chase.

The animal was finally captured after being subdued with a tranquilizer gun.

Animal control officers took custody of the goat.

They're not sure who owns the goat or how it got downtown.
