FORT WORTH, Texas (NBC/KXAS) - One Texas homeowner received quite the unusual and unwelcomed visitors.
Sharon Dyer was minding her own business on Wednesday watching TV when, suddenly, something in her yard caught her attention.
"Out of the corner of my eye, I see two billy goats walking across the screen over here," said Dyer.
Her home security camera caught two goats in her frontyard, and she went outside to see for herself.
"I went out this way; I went and looked -- looked down that way, looked down this way," said Dyer, pointing.
The goats snuck into her backyard. Phone in hand and video camera in the other, she ended up calling 911.
On the recording of Dyer's call to 911, the operator is heard asking if she needed the police, the fire department or an ambulance -- but Dyer said she needed help of another sort.
"No, this is goats," Dyer said to the operator. "Two billy goats in my backyard. Y'all get! Don't come over here to my garden."
Sure enough, they destroyed a few of her plants.
"They pulled up that jalapeno plant," Dyer said, showing the damage to her garden.
But Dyer was especially protective of a tiny palm tree, which she brought back from a recent trip to Florida.
"And then a goat is going to eat it?" Dyer said of the precious palm tree. "Not on my watch!"
Dyer asked the 911 operator if anyone was being sent to help her.
"I'm scared they might bully me, you know, like ram me or something," Dyer said to the operator. "No, don't eat my stuff! Get out of here. There's goats! Get out of my stuff!"
In order to scare the goats away, she grabbed a small table.
"And I picked it up, and I came over here. And I told him to get back," Dyer said.
On the recording of Dyer's call to 911, she's heard screaming at the goats.
"Get! Out! Out!" Dyer said while on the phone with the operator. "I'm sorry I'm screaming in your ear. Get away from there! Get away from it!"
Several police officers arrived, and the owner of the goats -- who lives just around the corner -- showed up about the same time.
He said they're his pets, named Savannah and Willie, and brought them back home after apologizing to Dyer.
"I videoed them all the way down the sidewalk," Dyer said. "They didn't want to go, either."
