Goat hijacks car

Caught in the act /Europics

An Austrian motorist felt a real silly-billy when he had to call police to report his car had been hijacked - by a goat.

Gunther Hauser had been forced to brake as he drove trough the countryside in Radkersburg, Austria, when he came face to face with the escaped beast on a remote road.

But as Mr Hauser, 45, tried to chase the goat away it doubled back, jumped into the car and refused to budge as it began eating his seats.

Finally, he trudged off to a local farm only to be chased off as a suspected burglar.

When he called the police, they rounded up local farmhands to remove the ram raider and take him back to his nearby enclosure.

"I had to take a picture of the goat because my insurance company would never have believed me," he said later.
