"Goat breaks into home, eats cake"

Best headline ever?

A few days ago in Westford, WI, Sherry Shirley went to let her dog into the house. Suddenly,

"...a full-grown goat burst into the house, jumped onto a kitchen counter and helped itself to a freshly baked chocolate cake, according to the Dodge County Sheriff's Department.

Deputies responded to a call from Shirley at 11:43 Saturday morning, but a neighbor had dragged the goat from the home by its horns before officers arrived, patrol captain Molly Soblewski said.

"The goat didn't do a lot of damage. It knocked some dishes to the floor that broke and began eating the chocolate cake she had just made," Soblewski said."

Deputies followed the goat's tracks to a nearby farm and had captured it, but ultimately the owners of the goat weren't cited.

Awesomely, the goat's owner said:

"It was just an unfortunate circumstance," she said. "I feel sorry for the lady, but it is kind of funny."
