(CBS/AP) SIMSBURY, Conn. - Putting four pygmy goats on their school's roof may only get some Connecticut high school seniors in a little trouble.

Authorities say firefighters rescued the goats from an overhang at Simsbury High School on Wednesday morning, following a suspected senior prank.

No kidding.

Principal Neil Sullivan says the goats were discovered by a custodian at about 5:30 a.m. No injuries were reported.

After being taken down, the pygmy goats were brought to Flamig Farm in West Simsbury. Officials are trying to find their rightful owner.

Sullivan says school officials are working with police to crack the case, but said they don't want to overreact to the incident.
