7 News is reporting that what was presumably a senior prank angered students, administrators, and a goat.
On Monday night, pranksters stole a goat from a local farm, broke into Algonquin Regional High School, and placed it in the girls’ locker room hallway.
Reportedly, the school is treating the incident seriously.
Ironically, the angry goat was discovered by students attempting their own prank. 7 News reports:
Then when two girls went around to open the door because we were doing another prank it came out and charged at everyone in the morning,” Lindsey Allor, a senior, said. . .
“What seemed like a prank it definitely crossed the line, especially in our classes mind. We feel that this does not represent Algonquin as a whole and it’s something we definitely condone,” [class president Patrick] Kane said.
School officials aren’t commenting on the crime but Kane said the school resource officer is investigating.
“They got footage of them and if they don’t turn themselves in 24 hours the police will take over because this was breaking and entering, = vandalism and stealing. This was bigger than it was meant to be,” he said.
Northboro Animal Control says the goat, 10-year-old Heidi, went missing from a farm in Marlboro around 8 p.m. Monday night. She is now safely home without any injuries.
