Pranksters give stolen goat pedicure

Two pranksters stole a goat from a petting zoo in California - and later returned it with pink 'nails'.

CCTV cameras captured footage of a woman climbing over a fence of the PB Pumpkin Patch in San Diego.

The video shows the woman scooping up the goat, unlocking the fence and running away. An accomplice is seen in the background.

The thieves dropped the goat off the following day and drove off. The goat was unhurt - but had been given a pedicure.

Zoo owner, Darryl Dadon, told 10News that the goat was very friendly and received a lot of attention from visitors.

"He jumps on your lap and kisses you. He's really sweet. He was bottle-fed for the first six months of his life. He's almost like a dog," he said.

"We're OK that we have our goat back. We're not OK that they jumped the fence and stole our goat."

However, he said the zoo did not want to press charges and believes the culprits may have suffered enough.

"Goats go to the bathroom a lot," he said. "I can only imagine what their house looks like. It's kind of karma for them."
