Army failed to get Navy's goat.

Early Sunday, cadets from the U.S. Military Academy abducted a goat they thought was Bill XXVI, the U.S. Naval Academy mascot.But the midshipmen had been anticipating the prank and hid the real Bill.

The goat that was kidnapped, Faux goat, had been rejected because it was ornery and had poor bathroom habits.

"We sort of hope they keep Faux goat," said Rear Adm. Virgil L. Hill Jr., Naval Academy superintendent. "He would do well at West Point. His personality will fit right in there."
