HUDSON COUNTY – Commuters who use travel the Pulaski Skyway during morning rush hour expected a normal trip Tuesday now that the wandering goat that snarled traffic for an hour on Monday has been corralled and saved.

For roughly an hour during the Monday morning commute, a goat dodged traffic on the Pulaski Skyway near Broadway and Tonnelle Avenue.

The Emergency Services Unit of the Jersey City Police Department eventually rescued the animal, which has been taken to a farm in Wantage, New Jersey.

Although the animal had a USDA stamp on its ear, indicating that it might belong to a company that slaughters animals for the sale of meat, it was unclear where the goat came from or how it managed to find its way to the bridge.

According to a report on, the goat will remain at the farm until its owner comes forward and claims it. If no owner comes forward, the goat will live on at the farm indefinitely.
