The National Police Air Service said a helicopter was dispatched Sunday to the Avon Gorge in Bristol, England, after someone called the 999 emergency number and reported hearing a person making "repeated" wailing sounds.

A police spokesman told the BBC that the goat cries "can be mistaken for humans in distress."

"The police appreciate the efforts of this caller as they do all callers who support their work by alerting them to incidents which they may otherwise not be made aware of," the spokesman said.

"Reports of this nature are taken seriously in order to ensure that public safety is maintained and individuals safeguarded."
