SIMSBURY, Conn. (AP) _ Simsbury firefighters were called to the high school for a goat removal.

The Hartford Courtant reports that four goats were rescued by firefighters from an overhang above the entrance to Simsbury High School school Wednesday morning.

No injuries were reported.

Officials say the goats may have been placed on the school as a senior prank.

Principal Neil Sullivan says the goats were discovered by a custodian at about 5:30 a.m.

The goats were taken to Flamig Farm, located about four miles away in West Simsbury.

Officials were trying to determine who owned the animals.

Sullivan says they are working with police to discover who put the goats on the school, but said they don’t want to overreact to the incident.
