COVINGTON, KY (WCPO) — A few goats were a little too anxious for Covington’s first annual Running of the Goats; they decided to throw caution to the wind and take off without their humans.
At around 1:15 p.m. Saturday, a group of six goats escaped near the Kenton County Administration Building and began running through Covington. They passed the Farmer’s Market and crossed several streets, our photographer on the scene said.
The goats were preparing to walk in a parade celebrating the opening of the market when they took their detour. Seven goats were supposed to trot through Covington, starting at the Farmers Market and ending at Goebel Park, with a group of 40 human volunteers who were to act as a barrier around them.
