Simcoe Reformer - Times-Reformer - - NEWS -

Po­lice re­mind mo­torists to pre­pare for all even­tu­al­i­ties after a herd of goats es­caped their pen near Beal­ton this week. A mo­torist alerted po­lice to the pres­ence of sev­eral goats in the mid­dle of the road on Townsend Road 2 be­tween the Cock­shutt Road and Villa Nova Road around mid­night Mon­day. An in­ves­ti­ga­tion de­ter­mined that the an­i­mals had es­caped from a pen at a nearby farm. The goats were rounded up and re­turned to their owner. “Po­lice are re­mind­ing all mo­tor ve­hi­cle op­er­a­tors to pay at­ten­tion to their driv­ing abil­i­ties and to be aware of your sur­round­ings at all times,” Const. Ed Sanchuk of the Nor­folk OPP said Tues­day in a news re­lease. “Pre­dictable is pre­ventable. Make safety your pri­or­ity.”
