SIMSBURY, Conn. (AP) -- Firefighters were called to a Connecticut high school for a goat removal.

Authorities say firefighters rescued four goats from an overhang above the entrance to Simsbury High School on Wednesday morning. They say the goats may have been placed there as a senior prank.

Principal Neil Sullivan says the goats were discovered by a custodian at about 5:30 a.m. No injuries were reported.

After being taken down, the pygmy goats were brought to Flamig Farm in West Simsbury. Officials are trying to find their rightful owner.

Sullivan says school officials are working with police to discover who put the goats on the overhang, but said they don't want to overreact to the incident.
