Four pygmy goats had a long night away from home.
The youngest one, just eight weeks old, and three others were found on a 10-foot overhang above four doors at Simsbury High School in Connecticut.
A custodian made the animal discovery around six o'clock this morning, police are calling it a senior prank.
Nevin Christensen owns Flamig Farm in Simsbury and was called in by the police to help.
Firefighters brought the goats down from the overhang via step ladders.
Christensen brought the goats to his farm, even though they are not his goats.
One of the goats has a tag which will be helpful in finding their rightful owner.
Police say that they do not know who is behind this prank and that whether or not charges will be filed depends on the how the school and owner of the goats want to handle it.
