And the race was on.
Dodging nets, fences, trees, and cars, this determined goat hoofed it around a park, keeping Melbourne police on their feet for hours.
No one knows where the goat came from, but Australian news reports say it's probably the same goat that was spotted near the airport a week ago.
Eventually, the female goat was nabbed and taken to a home for stray dogs.
She was aptly named "Houdini."
