Paperboy chased up tree by goat


A Salt Lake City paperboy was reported missing after a ‘possessed' goat kept him stuck in a tree for an hour.

Jaxon Gessel said he was delivering papers on his bicycle Tuesday morning when a goat named Voldemort attacked him.

Gessel said he was on his usual paper route when he heard a grunting noise and a shadow-like figure.

The 14-year-old said he was knocked off his bike and ran to a tree for safety.

The standoff with the goat lasted about an hour. Meanwhile, officers were searching for Gessel.

Gessel eventually came down when an officer arrived on scene.

Voldemort's owner said his chain broke and that was how he got loose.
