SIMSBURY, Conn. (AP) - Firefighters were called to a Connecticut high school for a goat removal.

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

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. No injuries were reported.

WVIT-TV reports they are pygmy goats from Flamig Farm, located about four miles away in West Simsbury.

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.
