A small goat managed to bring one of the UK’s biggest highways in standstill for about 90 minutes. How? By running around and sending the police on a wild goose... err... goat chase.

On Saturday, in the M62 near Lofthouse, North Yorkshire, the runaway goat kept on sprinting between the vehicles and darting all around the highway, reports Metro. Initially, the police tried catching the animal but it kept on evading the authorities. Finally, the police and the motorists came together to capture the elusive animal and get it out of the harm’s way.

Several onlookers captured the incident on the camera and later, some of the videos were shared on different social media platforms.

Here’s one such video:
