Fugitive goat struck, killed by truck in Kingston

Before its death Tuesday, the 'elusive' goat became a popular topic on Twitter.

Before its death Tuesday, the 'elusive' goat became a popular topic on Twitter.

An "elusive" goat that had been on the lam in Kingston, Ont., since August finally ran out of luck Tuesday, but not before causing a little more mayhem.

Frontenac OPP say the animal wandered onto Highway 401 between Sydenham Road and Sir John A. MacDonald Boulevard where it was struck and presumably killed by a passing tractor-trailer, denting the truck's grill.

Soon after, a small grey vehicle swerved to avoid the animal's carcass and collided with the centre median. A female occupant of the vehicle was taken to hospital with non-life threatening injuries, OPP said.

The black and white goat had gained a devoted following online, where people who spotted the animal posted photos of its exploits with the hashtag #ygkgoat. A local clothing company announced Wednesday afternoon it would make shirts featuring the hashtag to honour the goat.

There's no word on who owned the animal, or how it escaped in the first place. But the free-spirited goat clearly made a big impression on its many admirers.

A vigil will be held tonight for the goat at Cataraqui Community Centre at 6 p.m.
