MELBOURNE, Feb. 6 (UPI) -- Police in Australia said a goat reported on the loose near the Melbourne Zoo was caught at the end of a four-hour search.

Police said officers were sent to search the area around 10:20 a.m. Monday after the billy goat was reported wandering near the zoo. The animal was finally located and captured at 2:30 p.m., The Sydney Morning Herald reported Monday.

Melbourne Zoo spokeswoman Judith Henke said no goats are kept at the zoo.

Investigators said it is unclear whether the goat was the same animal spotted wandering in the city several times in recent weeks.
