Gary the goat's owner Jim Dezarnaulds had been told that he was required to pay a fine of 440 Australian dollars (£290) after the goat was caught eating from a flower bed outside the Museum of Contemporary Art.
A judge eventually decided to dismiss the case, stating that neither Gary nor Dezarnaulds could be accountable for what had happened, reports Metro.
Dezarnaulds said: "This is actually an abuse of the laws of nature, I mean, it was a goat eating grass.
"Gary taught the cops a valuable lesson, and that's don't bite off more than you can chew."
Since news of the incident went viral, Gary has gained more than 10,000 Facebook likes.
