    PATERSON, N.J. (AP) Police have captured five goats that were wandering the streets of a gritty northern New Jersey city.

    Chief Animal Control Officer John DeCando tells The Record newspaper that a woman called Paterson police after nearly hitting the herd with her car at 2:30 a.m. Thursday.

    Police took the goats to the animal shelter. They'll stay there until they are sent to a farm to live out their days.

    DeCando says he believes someone was keeping them for an Easter meal or a sacrifice.

    It's illegal to keep farm animals in Paterson.
