HAZLETON -- A wayward goat found wandering the streets of a Luzerne County community now has a new home.

Police were called out Thursday morning when the goat was found on east Broad Street in Hazleton near the fire station.

The goat was taken to a shelter, where it has since been rescued by a woman who owns several other goats.

Investigators don't know where the goat came from, but shelter officials say it would be illegal to have a goat in the city due to zoning laws.
