    PORTLAND, Ore. -- You can't ride TriMet without a ticket or a pass, especially, if you're a goat.

    A pygmy goat boarded a commuter bus in southeast Portland Monday night, leading a bus dispatcher to call 911.

    Officials said the bus was on layover at Southeast 94th Avenue and Foster Road when the goat wandered through the bus doors.

    Concerned of nearby freeway and street traffic, the bus driver alerted TriMet dispatchers.

    "I've got a very strange request," the caller told an emergency dispatcher. "A goat is on our bus. We need him off."

    A Portland police officer took the 47-pound pygmy goat to a Multnomah County Animal Services shelter in Troutdale. The officer attached a note to the goat; it read: "Didn't have the correct fare."

    Animal control officers later checked Craigslist and found a posting titled "Lost: Pygmy Goat (I 205 At Foster)".

    In the ad, a woman begged for the goat's return:

    " My little black pygmy goat figured out how to open the gate last night and got out of the yard. She was a birthday gift and I am really worried about her. PLEASE if you found or have seen her let me know. Thank you."

    Wendy Dean, the goat's owner, was reunited with Poppy on Tuesday afternoon.

    She said she hopes Poppy will be staying closer to home from now on.

    That still barely ranks in the top 10 of the weirdest things I've seen on public transportation.

    That's quite common, especially around the Storrow Drive area (in my experience).
