NYPD officers spend $40 to spare baby goat that escaped slaughterhouse

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.
