A herd of 200 goats escaped their enclosure in San Jose, California on May 13. The goats broke the boards of an electric fence and took to the streets. One person watching got video and called the incident, “the craziest thing to happen all quarantine.”

Zach Roelands took video and tweeted about the incident, “When I got back from the store all the goats had broken through the fence and were wreaking havoc on our street. This is the craziest thing to happen all quarantine.”



Roelands‘ father told a local news station that he uses goals to clear brush behind his house. But one of the goats started breaking boards trying to eat flowers on the other side and more goats followed along. One neighbor was able to lead the goats successfully back to their enclosure.

Roelands Twitter video got over 4 million views and he is asking those who liked the video to donate to Feeding America. Feeding America is an organization working to fight hunger during the coronavirus pandemic.
