MINNEAPOLIS (KARE/CNN) - Two sisters, ages 5 and 7, managed to walk away from a Minnesota petting zoo with a baby goat.

"Saturday night at about 11:30 we received a 911 call from a citizen in Mankato who saw what she described as two young girls walking a goat down riverfront drive, one of our busiest streets, with a goat on a leash," said Amy Vokal with the Mankato Police Department.

The girls, 5 and 7, successfully freed the goat from a farm, and walked over a mile to their neighborhood when the law finally stepped in.

"When questioned, they said the goat had been living in their bedroom closet and they said their mom knew but dad didn't," Vokal said. "They thought it was better if we kept it on the down low and didn't tell their dad."

The sisters had seen the goat at a birthday party earlier on Saturday and began their elaborate plan.

"You know they are crafty.  I mean they really conspired," Vokal said. "They brought the leash with them to the park, they had every intention of bringing home a pet goat."  

The goat is now back at the petting zoo, and the girls are home after getting spoken to by the police.

"You know it is one of those stories where as a cop you shake your finger at them, but you are trying not to bust out laughing," Vokal said.
