A goat went on a rampage at a local Euro Spar on the Victoria Road in Carrickfergus, County Antrim this week.

The stray animal paced outside the store, trapping staff and shoppers within.

According to the Carrickfergus Times, store manager Jonathan Smyth was organising the shop in the early hours of Saturday morning. 

“I looked up and there was a massive goat two foot up the door and it went nuts! It seemed to want to break into the shop and it was staring straight at me," said the manager. 

“It was into the baskets eating all the plants and running round the car park, I thought: ‘you’ve got to be kidding me!’”

The goat then charged at a customer, who was not harmed, before getting up on its hind legs and jumping on two cars.

“We have a pensioner named Billy who shops here and it charged at him and I grabbed him and dragged him through the door just in time before the goat crashed into the door,” said Jonathan.

The goat was apprehended and led away by a passer by.
