A goat that went AWOL for about 48 hours was one of the famous Bagot herd that spends the summer on a Cromer cliff-face.
Police in north Norfolk responded to reports of an escaped goat 'with large horns' on the loose on the A149 in Blakeney and nearby Wiveton on Saturday and Sunday afternoon.
PC Jon Parker tweeted yesterday that it had been found.
And a North Norfolk District Council spokesman confirmed today that it was one of the Cromer Bagot goats.
She said: 'The nanny goat was separated from the rest of the herd, as it had an infection, and was being treated in isolation. It had ben staying at Salthouse Heath. Somehow it broke through its pen, but it's back with the rest now.'
The goats eat the foliage which overgrows on the cliff-face in the summer. They are now grazing in north Norfolk on their winter break.
