It ain't easy: Goats can't resist lure of cheesy Cheetos

SAVANNAH, GA - A herd of goats wandering through midtown Savannah were unable to resist the lure of a bag of Cheetos.

Savannah-Chatham Animal Control officer Christina Sutherin tells the Savannah Morning News that police officers used a spectator's Cheetos to lead five runaway goats into an animal control vehicle Monday.

A patrol officer had found the animals impeding traffic as they wandered along the city's streets, drawing a crowd of amused bystanders. One juvenile goat was captured in a fenced-in yard, but the other five proved difficult to corral - at least until a spectator gave his bag of Cheetos to an officer to use as bait.

Sutherin says the owner of the goats has been cited for livestock at large. The goats will soon be made available for adoption.
