A goat has led City of Casey council officers on a hot pursuit through Cranbourne North, evading capture for more than 20 minutes.

The animal – known affectionately as Lebron – broke into sprint near Courtenay Gardens Primary School, narrowly avoiding oncoming traffic.

The goat avoided three council vehicles during peak-hour for a commendable amount of time before he was cornered in a driveway and captured.

Local Laws Officer Nick Haviaridis, part of the rescue crew, was surprised at how fast the goat was moving.

“Lebron led us on a merry chase, it took us nearly 20 minutes to corner and capture him,” he said.

“Definitely a feisty character.

“It’s not unusual for us to get calls like this.

“Because our municipality includes both rural and suburban areas, animals can often roam onto local streets.”

Following unsuccessful attempts to locate the owner, Lebron was rehomed outside of Casey.
