(Scroll down for video) Drivers in New Zealand, were shocked to see a young boy driving a car that was packed with young children and a live goat, according to a video that was uploaded to the Internet.

Gary Walden, who uploaded the video to Facebook, said that he was driving on a busy road in Whitianga, when he noticed a young boy sitting at the wheel of the Ford Falcon.

Walden took out his phone, and began following and recording the boy, who appeared to be just 8 years old.

At some point, Walden managed to pull beside the Ford Falcon, and noticed three additional boys along with a live goat in the car.

When Walden told the boy driver that he should not be behind the wheel of a car, all the children bailed from the vehicle on Buffalo Beach Road, leaving the goat behind.

A middle aged man, who appeared to be the boy driver’s father, told Walden to calm down as the kid was just training. The man then sat into the vehicle and drove off.

Walden uploaded the video to Facebook, where it went viral. Police launched an investigation into the incident after seeing the video, but so far, no arrests have been made.
