DOUBLE SHOALS, N.C., Oct. 22 (UPI) -- A North Carolina school said a football game had to be relocated after pranksters released goats into the stadium.

Workers at Burns High School in Double Shoals said Friday night's game against R-S Central had to be moved from Ron Greene Stadium to Crest High School after unidentified pranksters released 10 to 12 goats into the stadium overnight and the animals left a mess, the Shelby (N.C.) Star reported Monday.

Officials said they moved the game as a health precaution due to recent E. coli cases in the area.
