LAWRENCEVILLE -- Here's a riddle for you: Why did the goat cross the interstate?
Gwinnett police responded to Interstate 85 near the Lawrenceville-Suwanee Road exit at about 4:10 p.m. Wednesday after travelers reported seeing the goat running along the road. The goat was elusive, police spokesman Cpl. Jake Smith said.
"The goat was gone by the time officers arrived," Smith said.
Though the sighting is unconfirmed by police, the WSB Traffic Center reported spotting a goat at about 7:30 a.m. Thursday, this time about a mile north near the I-85/I-985 split.
It's not the first time animals have been spotted roaming Gwinnett's roadways.
In June, a tractor-trailer hauling "30 or 40" cows overturned on I-85 near Spout Springs Road, triggering a multi-hour roundup as the cows wandered the surrounding area.
A year prior, a peacock named "Blue" escaped from the Yellow River Game Ranch and was spotted throughout Lilburn and up and down Ga. Highway 124.
