911 phone call

(Baxter, TN) An East Tennessee woman called 911 when she thought she heard a neighbor crying for help.
When police arrived they found no one in trouble, just a screaming goat in a nearby yard.
The animal became separated from a group of goats and his cries for help sounded very human. Police say they had a big chuckle over the situation.
The woman says her neighborhood is home to a lot of unusual pets including ducks, pigs and peacocks.
