LAKEWOOD, Colo. – Police officers in Lakewood had to enlist the help of neighborhood kids in order to capture a slippery suspect.

A crafty little goat got loose last week and managed to elude both Lakewood Police officers and animal control officers, but a few brave kids stepped up and brought peace and uneaten lawns back to the neighborhood.

The Lakewood Police Department shared on Facebook Friday a picture of the elusive goat safely back in the hands of its owner and the little bounty hunters who made it all possible.
