Getting to a store and realizing it's closed is frustrating—and humans aren't the only ones who think so.

A particularly frustrated billy goat attempted to enter a store in Carrickfergus, Northern Ireland, but was met by a closed door. Not that it stopped him from trying to get inside.

“I was on my own in the store at around 6:20 a.m. and thought it was the bread man knocking,” store manager Jonathan Smyth told the Carrick Fergus Times. “It seemed to want to break into the shop and it was staring straight at me. It was into the baskets eating all the plants and running round the car park, I thought, ‘You’ve got to be kidding me!’”

(KIDding you, you say?)

While the goat may not have gotten into the store, it still spent some time terrorizing people unlucky enough to be in the parking lot.

Smyth said an employee named Billy (perhaps the goat saw a competitor?) was charged and nearly hit by the goat before ducking into the store just in time to save himself a potential injury. Another employee was walking across the parking lot when a woman hiding in her car warned him of the threat, and had him jump in the car with her.

Eventually, the goat was contained by what Smyth describes as a passer-by who “grabbed it by the horns and walked off with it.”

No one was hurt during the majorly entertaining but slightly scary incident.

This goat may want to give a call to the beaver who completely wrecked a Christmas tree display inside a Maryland Dollar Store last week. Maybe they can go to animal anger management together.
