DOUGLAS COUNTY, Ga. — A Douglas County deputy learned the hard way that you should always make sure your car door is closed before knocking on someone’s door.
The Douglas County Sheriff’s Office posted body cam video to its Facebook page of a deputy stopping at someone’s home.
The video shows the deputy walk up to a house and knock on the front door and then you hear the deputy curse.
As the deputy walks back to the car, they open the passenger side door to find a goat inside, eating a bunch of the deputy’s paperwork inside.

“Get out! Go on, get out! Go!” the deputy tells the goat, but it just kept eating the papers.
After a few minutes – and several attempts to the coax the goat out (and a few more curse words) – the goat finally hopped out of the deputy’s car.
Of course, the goat was still eating some of the deputy’s paperwork and as the deputy attempted to get it back, she fell over.
In the Facebook post, the Sheriff’s Office said, “the deputy explained that due to the number of houses she visits daily, she routinely leaves her vehicle’s door open because she has had to retreat on a number of occasions from vicious dogs.”
As for the deputy, she wasn’t hurt at all, just a little embarrassed. Eventually she was able to get back into her cruiser and drive off.
