    Police use Taser to halt out-of-control horny goat in NZ

    Police have tasered a rampaging goat in an Oamaru garage.

    The goat, which had earlier been reported disrupting traffic on State Highway 1, was eventually cornered in a garage by a small dog.

    Oamaru Senior Constable Carl Pedersen said police were called to a property between Exe and Nen streets on Thursday morning where the dog was keeping the goat at bay until police took over.

    "Unfortunately it was pretty stressed out and quite unco-operative, so I tased it," Pedersen said.

    Pedersen said the goat, with its large horns, had damaged the garage and there were concerns it would escape back onto State Highway 1 and endanger the safety of motorists, as it had earlier in the day.

    Waitaki District Council regulatory services manager Lichelle Guyan said the council had been alerted to a "large, rogue goat" running around Highfield Mews Hotel near State Highway 1 earlier in the day.

    When animal control officers approached the goat it bolted across the highway in front of vehicles, she said.

    The goat managed to evade animal control officers, bounding over several fences, before they lost sight of it.

    Despite the attempts of animal control, police and a local Korean veterinarian, they were unable to safely contain or calm the animal, she said.

    Unfortunately, after attempts to sedate the animal it had to be euthanased by a vet at the property it was found on, Guyan said.

    "Council would like to stress that any person who decides to keep an animal within the district must ensure the animals are effectively contained within their property and do not cause a nuisance to any person; a requirement of the Waitaki District General Bylaw."

    Animal control believed the goat was the same animal which had been spotted walking on the railway line by a member of the public on Tuesday, Guyan said.
