TUCSON, Ariz. — The petting zoo at the UA soccer game is continuing as scheduled, after animals managed to escape from their handlers at a previous event.
The animals, owned by Rockin' Star Ranch, escaped custody by breaking through their fence at an event prior to the soccer game, according to the the school's Athletics Communications Department.
Less than an hour and a half before the match between UA and TCU, Arizona Athletics tweeted, "The goats & sheep escaped at a previous event and are currently being chased through the streets of Tucson."
University of Arizona has confirmed to KGUN9 that the animals have since been rounded up and will be present at the event.
