Bloomington Springs, Tenn. (The Tennessean) -- A 911 call to tell police about a series of loud cries for help actually turned out to be a goat shrieking.

The Putnam County Sheriff's Office responded to the call in the Bloomington Springs area after a neighbor placed the 911 call when she heard the cries after arriving home from work, Chief Deputy Jack Farley said.

The responding officer found a goat tied to a fence was making the noise.

"She did the right thing,'' Farley said of the woman who made the call. "The officer called back and told the dispatcher it did sound just like someone crying for help. It sounded like a real distress call that we have to respond to.''

The owner told police he would take care of the goat, according to the police report.
