ST. ALBANS, Queens (WABC) -- Members of the NYPD spent $40 to save the life of a kid with a beard.
And by kid, we mean a baby goat.
The animal was caught running around the streets of St. Albans, Queens, earlier this week after escaping a slaughterhouse.
After learning it was on track to be killed, officers with the 103rd Precinct paid the owners $40 to spare its life.
The goat is now living a happy life at an animal sanctuary in Suffolk County.
The officers have said it was the best $40 they've ever spent.
