'Upset goat' too noisy for neighbours' liking in Barrie

A noisy goat drew the ire of some neighbours and ended up writing his ticket out of town.

Barrie police say they investigated a noise complaint on Shaw Crescent on Saturday night.

They found an "upset goat" in the backyard of a home.

The officers told the goat owner that farm animals were prohibited under a local bylaw.

The goat was moved to a garage for the evening and is being moved to a farm today.
