Goats in the News

From the You Can’t Make This Stuff Up department, this week produced a headline that read…and I quote…

The opening lines to the article:

CHARLESTON, W.Va. — Police say an Alum Creek man high on bath salts killed his neighbor’s pygmy goat and that neighbors found him in his bedroom, dressed in a bra and panties, next to the dead animal,…

  2. This annual running of the goats looks so much fun! I just hope they are not tied up so they can run freely and not hurt. :(

  3. That is crazy! What is wrong with all the 4 legged goats! LOL

    I’m amazed the three legged race winner. Wonder how the Owner trained him? With a plate of meat-balls threatening – “Run cause if I catch you, I’m gonna make you into meatballs”!!

    I don’t like to see any sort of animals hurt for public fun, and I didn’t know that people eat goats… They’re pets, I couldn’t do it, it would be like eating one of my dogs.

    1. Yuck. I can understand that. But in other countries, goats are eaten just like cows and chickens, even more so. I think we might the only country that hasn’t popularized it yet. I guess it’s a matter of how one’s brain was raised to think about certain animals. And I don’t think the racing goats were supposed to get hurt, but if they had humans with leashes involved, who knows what they’re doing.

    THE HORROR! THE HORROR!
    First goats on leashes falling down.
    Second murdered goats
    Third goat for dinner.

    I am going to go lie down now.
    I am a depressed goat.

    1. Sorry, Pricilla. I didn’t realize I was posting such a violent one today.

    Was either man or beast hurt durin’ the runnin’ of the goats? Looks painful!

    The stuff they call bath salts is totally different than the bath salts I pour into the jets of my tub. Ya’ll, please don’t try smokin’ it at home!

    Have a super great Mother’s Day weekend!

    1. It does look painful. I don’t think I could have handles watching a video. So is “bath salts” a nickname for crack or something? I thought it was literally bath salts. Learn something new every day.

  11. Nicky says:

    Ok, that 3-legged goat race doesn’t look like fun, what with the prone bodies and all!

    Seriously? High on bath salts? Who knew you could get high on bath salts?

    1. Madge says:

      They call them bath salts but they have the effect of meth and one hit can keep you high for three days or more, the FDA is trying to ban them here you can buy them at convenience stores and smoke shops. Really dangerous stuff a guy here killed his girlfiriend they were both on salts. It comes in a little packet like pop rocks.

      1. So are they really bath salts or something else? I’m so drug-ignorant.

      2. Madge says:

        Nope, they’re not they just call them Bath Salts the news story said if you take the WORST parts of Meth, Heroin, and Cocaine and mix them together that is the effect that bath salts have.

        1. Well, that will teach me to pay more attention to the stories I circulate. Thanks!
