If you’re having one of those weeks, don’t worry, so is Comox Valley RCMP.

The detachment reported two instances that would have anyone scratching their head.

On Tuesday, July 13th, an off-duty Oceanside RCMP officer saw a goat on the loose in Courtenay.

RCMP reported that the goat was on a walkabout along 29th Street when the call came in.

Before they could arrive, the off-duty officer put the goat on a leash, until the owner of the goat could claim the prize.

The next day, on Wednesday July 14th, Comox Valley RCMP responded to a 911-call reporting several gunshots from a residence on Fitzgerald Avenue in Courtenay.

When police went to the area they immediately blocked off the road and surrounding area.

Residents inside the home cooperated with the investigation, ensuring nobody was hurt.

According to the RCMP, someone had been playing loud music and gunshots rang out in one of the songs.

While the event had no injuries, Comox Valley RCMP are still asserting that they need respect in order to fulfill their duty.

“While we had the area blocked off, several people tried to pass-by pylons and police vehicles designed to keep residents out of danger,” said Cst. Monika Terragni, Media Relations Officer, Comox Valley RCMP.

“One woman even stood at the side of the road yelling at police as people were exiting the residence. It is very important that while these situations unfold to respect the blocked off areas and allow us to do our job – do not try to interfere or pass through an area that could be dangerous.”

Well, let’s just hope residents can appreciate the screaming vocals of metal music.
