Goat butts in and gets into a jam

A goat in the Malaysian state of Negeri Sembilan found itself trapped in a car after getting its head stuck in the steering wheel yesterday. The car's owner was getting ready to leave for work and had opened the door when the goat barged into the vehicle, the Sinar Harian newspaper reported. Its horns got caught in the steering wheel as it attempted to make a quick escape. The car's owner, a 50-year-old woman, then called the Civil Defence Department for help. "The goat's horn got hooked in the steering wheel, causing it to be trapped," Kuala Pilah Civil Defence Department Head of Operations Zulkarnain Basiron was quoted as saying by the paper. Three officers from the department arrived on the scene to find the goat stuck in the driver's seat. They were able to free it in three minutes.
