In an unusual encounter during his morning route, a 14-year-old Utah paperboy says a goat knocked him onto the ground and chased him up a tree.
Smithfield resident Jaxon Gessel says he was delivering papers Tuesday morning when a goat approached him from the side and head-butted him off his bike.
"It just freaked me out when it stood up on its hind legs and just wrapped its front legs around me, and pulled me off," Gessel said.
He had seen a shape in the morning darkness and didn't think much of it at first, passing it off as a dog. Then, he said, it started making a "grunting noise" and he saw the goat approaching him.
The goat chased the teen up a tree and the two looked back and forth at each other for about an hour.
