A rogue goat terrorised a pregnant woman and her friend at a home in Oxley Park last week.

St Marys firefighters were called to control the animal on Wednesday afternoon after it had rammed into a garage door and stared down a car outside a townhouse on Canberra Street.

Home owner William Johnson said his partner was about to leave the house with her friend when she was greeted at the front door by the goat.

“My girlfriend was very afraid,” he said.

“She and her friend tried to scare it away but it started to come towards them.

“It started butting the garage and even charged at a car that came up the driveway.”

The goat left a hefty dent in the roller garage door.

Mr Johnson said his partner visited hospital to check on her baby’s health, such was the stress of the incident.

“It was pretty aggressive,” he said.

“The garage is dented pretty bad and the glass is cracked next to the door. I was at work so obviously I was very worried.”

Just how the goat came to be outside the home remains a mystery to St Marys station officer Carlos Henry.

“We have no idea where it came from or who owns it,” he said.

“It was quite distressed. It wasn’t letting people out of their homes.

“We had to grab it by the horns and take it across the road.”

Mr Henry said aside from the odd cat or bird stuck in a tree, the St Marys’ crew didn’t often have to deal with livestock.

“We sometimes get snakes,” he said. “This was definitely one of the most unusual calls we’ve had.”
