(CNN) - Talk about a gruff break. When an Ashland County, Ohio, homeowner noticed someone broke into her home last week, she never expected to find a goat sleeping inside her bathroom, WEWS reported.

The Ashland County Sheriff's Department received the "unBAAAlievable" call at around 3 p.m. on Oct. 4.

Proceeding into the home with caution, deputies walked around the residence expecting to find someone armed and dangerous, but instead they found a goat asleep on the bathroom floor. The goat attempted to barricade himself by ramming the bathroom door, according to Ashland County Pictures, who captured the whole incident.

The suspect goat was identified as "Willy B.Goat," also known around the area as Willy Billy.

Deputies said the goat became verbally and physically combative, screaming "baaaaa" while swinging his head when deputies told him to leave.

The homeowner told police, "He [the goat] was destructive and seemed a bit spiteful with a nasty temperament."

Fortunately, the goat wasn't injured during the break-in. He was released into the custody of his owner.
