It wasn’t the streets of Pamplona and they were not bulls, but a northern California town had some excitement in an otherwise monotonous day.

About 200 goats got out of their enclosure and took to the streets of a San Jose neighborhood Tuesday, The Mercury News reported.

The running of the goats was caught on video and posted to Twitter.

The neighbors worked together to get the goats to head in the same direction, despite some goats stopping for a nibble of landscaped gardens, KGO reported. A dog even got in on the excitement, working on its herding technique.

Zach Roelands, who posted the video, said that the goats come in once a year to eat the brush that grows on a nearby hillside, The Mercury News reported.
