A woman and her accomplice were caught on tape taking a 6-month-old goat named Billy from a California petting zoo in the middle of the night. They later returned him with his nails painted pink.
Call her the pedicure bandit.
A woman was caught on tape stealing a goat from a California petting zoo on Sunday, which she later returned after painting its nails.
Billy the goat was taken from his enclosure at the PB Pumpkin Patch in San Diegos Pacific Beach around 2 a.m. Sunday, and the whole heist was captured on surveillance cameras.
In the video, a ponytailed young woman can be seen scaling a fence and scooping Billy up, who she then carries off into the night.
She and her fellow goat burglar, who can also be seen on the tape, later dropped the 6-month-old animal off in perfect condition, sporting a hot pink pedicure.
Were OK that we have our goat back, Darryl Dadon, the owner of the pumpkin patch, told San Diegos ABC 10 News. Were not OK that they jumped the fence and stole our goat.
Nothing else appeared to have been taken from the property.
Dadon says the good-natured goat is very popular with the staff, and he can almost understand why someone would want to take him home.
[He] jumps on your lap and kisses you. Hes really sweet, he said. Hes almost like a dog.
Dadon said now that he has his goat back, he is not interested in pressing charges, though the goat still bears the scars of its abduction.
Weve tried to remove [the polish] but its not coming off, Dadon told The Huffington Post.
As far as Dadon is concerned, the burglars likely got what they deserved and dont need further punishment. [Goats] go to the bathroom a lot, he told ABC. I can only imagine what their house looks like. Its kind of karma for them.
You’ve got to be kidding....
The infamous Pacific Beach Woolite junkies no doubt.
Sounds like somebody got his goat.
Everyone’s going pink this month.
I didn’t know goats have ‘nails’ .... thought they had hooves. Well ... I learned something new today.
You’ve never walked by a goat beauty parlor?
Well ... sure ... but I always assumed they just went there to have their beards trimmed.
Better get some security over there.
BTW how far are you from Indianapolis? One of our good helpers husband has been given a promotion with a move in the works to there. Looks like we will lose her.
too funny. I needed this post. Thanks!
You are welcome.
Yup; and if they don't wear down by them walking on rough ground, you have to trim them back; just like horses hooves.
Can you think of ANY reason they'd DO this to you?
It does make you look a bit more fetching.
Don't give ME a flehmen response just for asking these questions!
In miles or politics??
The first: about 15.
The second: 3.4 light years.
Now that the “Big Bird” strategy has failed, maybe Obama will make this incident his next big campaign issue.
oops, mistake I don’t think cows have cloven hoofs, just woke up from nap and brain is still in sleep mode..
Cows DO have cloven hoofs.
We had a cow on the farm, she ended up being tasty. One day I called her into the barn for her daily bucket of grain and hubby went around her with our hand sprayer to keep those horrid horse flys off her and when he got to her back end, she slightly shifted her weight and landed on his foot...I didn't know a man could scream that good, but with her head in the grain bucked, he couldn't push a 1500 pound cow off his foot....I had to back off with the grain to get his foot free, but he was lucky, that barn had a dirt floor, the other big barn had cement floor, it use to be at some time in its past a barn for milking cows...now that would have crushed his foot...
Lots of farmers get hurt on the job, usually its with equipment, and sometimes a hungry cow named Spot...
"Dat's right, dat's right, everbody gittin' Obama pedicures.....got to keep Obama in president....you poor, you a minority, you disabled, you on food stamps....you git a Obama pedicure!"
On a bare foot is worse than having shoes on. Yikes...and horses wear shoes...I was wondering if it broke any foot bones...the foot has lots of bones in it...
My horse wasn’t shod either. :)
Yup, Ellie Mae. (The brown one next to Casper on the shelf.)
She’s fine; just needs milked a lot!
(I didn’t sign up for this! ;^)
thats not a LOL, its a chuckle. :O) Bless her little heart....and big udder..

LOL that kid was born on speed...loved it....thx...
