Being a deputy in Florida is no easy task, and each day presents new challenges. Because of this, officers have to be prepared for pretty much anything, sort of like when a Hillsborough County deputy had to round up a heard of goats on the loose.
According to the Facebook post made by the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Department, Corporal Kaleikini responded to a call for 13 loose goats in the suburban, and definitely not rural, Village of Lake St. Charles subdivision in Riverview yesterday - and he caught some of the chase on video.
The post further states: "After checking the HCSO manual under “'loose goats'” and finding no guidance, he channeled his inner cowboy and herded them through the streets. They eventually found their way back home to a neighboring property where they had knocked down part of the fencing. The owner, who didn’t know they were missing, was grateful to get them back safely. "
Check out the video below:
People thought the post was absolutely hilarious and it has been viewed thousands of times. One Facebook user commented that "They just wanted to go to the fair."
Another user said they think the officer deserves a new pair of boots: "We think Corporal Kaleikini needs a free pair of Russell's boots!"
Thankfully none of the goats - or the RO - were harmed in the making of this video.
