With apologies to New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, this story isn’t about you, Tom.
It’s about a real goat, the four-legged kind.
It was early Monday when Pembroke Pines Police Officer Emilio Rubido was near the 7100 block of Pines Boulevard and “located a friendly lost goat,” the department said on Twitter.
Rubido rounded up the small goat with its little horns, put it in the backseat of his cruiser (no arrest necessary) and motored around some surrounding neighborhoods. “A brief joy ride,” is what police called it.
A short time later Rubido was able to locate the goat’s human family and get everyone back together — reunited.
This isn’t the first time a law enforcement officer in Broward County has helped rescue a wayward goat. In early January of 2018, Broward Sheriff’s Office Deputy Monica Jean found a goat on the loose in Cooper City. It had managed to get away from a local farm. Jean hoisted the animal in her arms and got him back where he belonged.
A couple of good days instead of baaaaad ones.
