Goat hijacks Austrian motorist's car
An Austrian motorist was obliged to call for police assistance after his car was hijacked by a goat which had escaped from a nearby farm. Gunther Hauser, 45, was driving through Radkersburg in Austria when he had to stop his car to chase the escaped goat from a remote country road, but his attempts to chase it away backfired when the goat got past him and jumped into the car. It then refused to leave the car and began eating the seats.
Unfortunately, Mr Hauser's problems did not end there. When he attempted to seek assistance at a nearby farm, he was mistaken for a suspected burglar and chased away. Mr Hauser then decided to call the police, who were fortunately able to recruit the local farmhands to get the goat out the car and return him to his proper enclosure.
Speaking later, Mr Hauser added that "I had to take a picture of the goat because my insurance company would never have believed me."
