A goat ran away and started terrorising a neighbourhood before being denied access to a shop and taking his rage out on onlooker called Billy.

Near Eurospar store in Carrickfergus, County Antrim, the goat charged furiously towards an old age pensioner, Billy, then jumped on cars before eating all the plant pots during its half-hour rampage.

When the goat was head-butting a shop window the shop manager, Jonathan Smyth, though the sound was someone knocking about a bread delivery.

Jonathan said: “I thought it was the bread man but when I turned around, I saw this massive goat standing on its two hind legs.

“It seemed like it wanted to come into the shop and was looking straight at me.”
