A goat was arrested in Northern Alabama for jumping on a car!
Sheriff Mike Blakely said the goat and the dog were playing on U.S. 72 near County Line Road on Sunday morning when a motorist stopped to get them out of harm’s way. She feared they would cause a wreck or someone would run over them.
What the motorist, Patricia Tomlinson of Madison, didn’t count on was the goat clamoring on top of her car, causing at least $1,000 in damage with its hooves.
The vehicle was initially thought to be a Mercedes-Benz, but a written report indicates it is a 2004 Toyota Camry.
Tomlinson called the Sheriff’s Department, and when deputy Ron Crouch arrived, he found her holding onto the goat as it scratched and dented her vehicle.
Crouch put the goat in his patrol car, and the dog hopped into the back seat with his buddy.
No one had claimed either the dog or the goat.
