A GOAT which got its head stuck between a metal fence had a lucky escape.

The goat became stuck on Saturday, May 12, at about 5pm in Norton, near Stockton, when a member of the public called the RSPCA.

The goats were kept in an enclosure but had somehow got out twice in one day and the second time, one managed to get her head stuck in the metal fence.

She was struggling to free herself and she had her kid with her who was also very distressed.

Emily Welch, animal collection officer at the RSPCA, said: "Thankfully we were called and were able to let the goat free.

"We basically had to dig beneath the fence and move the dirt away to create some space to gently push her head down so she could be released.

"Apart from it being a bit of an ordeal for both mother and kid, they were both absolutely fine."
