Magic Goat’s Pretty Hairband

You know, I’m not convinced that this goat isn’t guilty. I mean, what’s with that thing on his head? It looks like some sort of wizardly headpiece, doesn’t it?
The black and white animal was turned in to police by a vigilante group, which claimed it was an armed car thief who had used black magic to transform himself into a goat to escape arrest after trying to steal a Mazda 323.

“The group of vigilante men came to report that while they were on patrol they saw some hoodlums attempting to rob a car,” Tunde Mohammed, a spokesman for Kwara state police, told Reuters.

“They pursued them. However, one of them escaped while the other turned into a goat,” he said. While Mr Mohammed said he could not confirm whether a man had, in fact, turned into a goat, he did admit that the animal was in police custody. A photo of the goat, resting on its knees next to a pile of straw, was published in Nigeria’s Vanguard newspaper.

    Oh yeah, that’s definitely one guilty looking goat right there. I want to know how they cuffed him and took him into custody. Is he entitled to a court appointed lawyer in his goat form? Maybe someone needs to call PETA.

    I wonder if they set bail? Please don’t mention PETA. I got messed up in a thread regarding them, and haven’t shaken off the trauma yet ;o)
