Because sometimes goats need unpronounceable Swedish-designed home decor too, a pair were spotted this weekend grazing on grass outside of the Red Hook Ikea, DNAinfo reports. Unlike the adorable tiny monkey wandering around a Toronto Ikea, however, these goats were unfortunately not wearing animal-sized shearling coats.

Though the duo were "very well-behaved," they did eventually scurry over to the rather less goat-friendly parking lot. Luckily, security was able to corral them into a cage and contact the goats' handler, who had been looking for them all day and promptly arrived via bicycle to collect them.
