Auburn, Mas­sachusetts, po­lice re­ceived a num­ber of calls over the week­end of Sept. 15-17 about a way­ward goat, but it wasn’t un­til the wee hours of Sept. 18, that No. 448 was fi­nally cor­ralled at the La Quinta Inn in Auburn, re­ported CBS Bos­ton. The “mis­chievous run­away farm an­i­mal” was seen on sur­veil­lance video en­ter­ing the lobby of the ho­tel and wan­der­ing the halls, “pre­sum­ably to rest a bit,” said po­lice. Peter Blash, No. 448’s owner, said the goat jumped a 5-footh­igh fence and “took off like a crim­i­nal.” How­ever, Blash said, “I had one that made it all the way to Stur­bridge.”
