Goats arrested for vandalising police car
Police have detained a herd of goats in the Indian city of Chennai after the force's brand new Toyota Innova police car was damaged by up to 12 errant beasts. Policeman Ganesh Babu, who was in charge of the car, is said to have caught the animals as they grazed near the city police station. The animals were allegedly standing on top of the vehicle, causing dents, scratching the paintwork and damaging the windscreen and wipers.
The officer was able to apprehend three of the suspects, who have now been remanded in custody at a nearby Society for the Protection of Animals centre. Police claimed the goats had a record of damaging vehicles belonging to local residents and shopkeepers, and had 'crossed the line' by damaging the brand new police car.

"We saw him just open the door of the truck, just easy as anything.… He was obviously used to accessing vehicles."
Pig forces school lockdown
Owner Karen Turner said the family pet meant no harm and it was just a case of pigs being pigs.
The alarm was raised when Henry came across a group of kids carrying a basket full of school lunches. The startled students stopped in their tracks and dropped the sandwiches, which Henry took as an invitation to a free feed.
The situation lurched from odd to bizarre when the school was placed in lockdown for the next 30 minutes.
"The funny thing is the school was preparing to have a lockdown drill later in the day," Ms Turner said. "The school has a new principal and a new groundsman, who don't really know him (Henry). "They didn't know what to do so they just called the lockdown early."
North Arm State School will tomorrow host its annual Fun Fair, which will feature pig races.
Henry will not be racing.
