An escaped goat has been captured after running loose in a hospital parking lot in Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn.

The goat is said to have escaped from a slaughterhouse and was spotted around Fulton Avenue at approximately 1 a.m. this morning.

A security guard at Interfaith Medical Center helped capture the goat after it was cornered in a parking lot on Herkimer Street across from the hospital, according to ABC News. The guard, Seydou from West Africa, used a rope to try to lasso the goat.

Eventually, after hiding behind several cars, the goat was caught when Seydou grabbed it by the horns. It was then taken to Animal Care and Control in the back of a squad car.

The goat will not be returned to the slaughterhouse and will instead be taken to an animal sanctuary upstate.
