A roaming goat caused traffic chaos by stubbornly trotting down a busy road and refusing to get out of the way.
The animal casually crossed from the right lane in front of vehicles on Thompson Road in Bangholme, Victoria, and trots along the side of the road.
When the driver pulls up alongside it in an attempt to direct it off the road, it ignores the attempt and keeps moving straight ahead.
He trots around the car and returns to his position in the left lane with anyone behind him forced to move at a snail’s pace.
A goat has been captured roaming along a busy Victorian road, as commuters attempt to direct the animal away from danger
The goat dawdles along the highway for about 200m before veering into an exit lane where multiple cars attempt to surround the animal and direct it off the road.
The stubborn animal evades capture again and continues ahead, as drivers continuously pull over to have their attempt to catch the elusive mammal.
Multiple travelers turn their hazard lights on, and a truck attempts to cut the goat off, before it again slips through and continues down the road.
The goat finally evades drivers completely, halting a busy intersection and jumping over a roadside barrier and into bushes when pursued by two motorists.

Multiple commuters stopped in an attempt to stop the goat, but it had other plans
Drivers were exiting their cars to chase the mammal, before it jumped a roadside barrier and escaped into nearby bushland
The driver of a ute seen in the very first capture attempt goes through a red-light as motorists allow him to continue to pursue the animal.
One user commented: ‘I do like these new road rules that state “when in pursuit of goat, you may run as many red lights as required, as long as safe to do so”.’
While another wrote: ‘That goat was doing better than most drivers, was staying in his lane, and even refused to let in a few crazy merging drivers, I say slap on a plate and let him go.’
