Dead Goats

Two hundred and forty-three goats were crushed to death this morning after the livestock truck they were riding in flipped while making a tight turn. The goats were the property of Goats R Us, that rents out the herd to agencies seeking to control overgrowth and reduce fire danger. About 150 goats survived the crash and were taken to their new job site where they had been heading at the time of the accident.

What a dreadful story. I think the surviving goats should get stress leave.

Dead Goats tell no tails

I too was shocked by the thought of those poor and horrified goats having to go to work after seeing such carnage.

Than again their job is to eat grass which is probably what they would be doing regardless...
