ATHOL, Idaho - It was a different kind of home invasion.

Just after noon on Thursday the Timberlake Fire Protection District responded to a report that a deer may have broken a window at a home off Howard Road.

Needless to say authorities were a bit surprised when they saw a snow white goat standing on the back porch in the midst of shattered glass.

Fortunately the homeowner was not hurt in the incident.

The goat had ripped off the screen and was charging the glass door, breaking the outer pane of glass, possibly angry from seeing its own reflection in the glass.

The goat was calm while authorities were on scene and stood on the back porch, but would not leave.

A Kootenai County Sheriff's Deputy also assisted, he cracked open the sliding door and slightly nudged the goat from inside the home with a stick, which persuaded the goat to wander back into the adjacent woods.
