A goat was spotted waiting at a train station in Pratteln, Switzerland.
Staff at train stations in the UK have seen their fair share of surprising incidents but very few of them would be able to claim witnessing a goat calmly waiting for a train like their counterparts in Switzerland have just done.
Normally the only strange thing you witness at a station is your train arriving on time but if you happened to be a worker at one in Pratteln, Switzerland, you were treated to an appearance by a farmyard animal.
Baffled workers at the station were shocked when they found a goat waiting in one of their rooms.
Even more astonishing was that the animal was calm and seemed like he was used to travelling by public transport.
Officers managed to track down the owner of the goat after locating an identity chip under its skin.
'We don't know how he got there or what he thought he was waiting for but he's back in his field now,' said a police spokesman.
