Bridgeton police officer Jonathan Hovermann and Class II officer Jennifer Skala found the animal on Irving Ave. near Inspira Hospital after a passerby called about the goat, the Bridgeton Police Department wrote on Facebook.
He was temporarily named “Burgy” and transferred to Cumberland County SPCA in Vineland, where he was placed in one of the pens for farm animals, junior volunteer coordinator Jessica Morrison told ABC News on Wednesday.
“He’s doing very well,” Morrison said. “He’s totally friendly, and we haven’t had any issues with him.”
Police and the SPCA is hoping the owner will contact them soon, she added.
Stray farm animals are rare to find, but they do get lost, Morrison said.
“We had a potbelly pig a couple of hundred pounds in here before,” she said.
