A woman on her way to St. Paul really got the goat of auto repairman James Prusci.
She went to Tires Plus in Winona Friday, wanting a belt replaced on her Chevy Malibu. While he was doing paperwork, she said she had a goat in her trunk.
"A what?" he asked. She told him she planned to butcher it.
It was painted Minnesota Viking colors - purple and gold - with Brett Favre's No. 4 shaved on its side. Favre made his Vikings debut Friday in a preseason game.
You beat me to this one! =-D

I’m at a loss for words here. Something about a GTO, or a little old lady from Pasadena.
Prusci called animal control, which took the goat to a local vet. He was renamed Brett and placed in foster care.It's a sad day in this country when you can't slaughter your own livestock.
Animal control officer Wendy Peterson said Monday the city attorney is reviewing the case for possible citations.
And if Brett Favre had
Signed with Oakland, Goat would be
My “Trunk Monkey” beats you “Trunk Goat”.
What was the age of said animal?
Oh, I think that it would have been OK if she’d let it ride in back seat. With a seat belt, of course. But not in the trunk.....
I’m guessing this is a Muslim, and wanted the goat for the Iftar dinner after sundown, since it is Ramadan right now.
Think: Disgruntled Packers fan.....
In the back seat with a seat belt.....
Good idea, then you just have to drive off a bridge and let the animal drown. We all know there are no consequences for doing that.....
I’m with you, isn’t this unconstitutional? They confiscated her property when she was legally transporting it and going to butcher it. Our government is out of control and what is really sad is there are a bunch of FReepers who think they are conservative who will jump in and uphold the tyranny of this.
Where I live there are many Serbians, and other slovakians, that raise and eat goats. You don't have to be Muslim to eat goats. The young ones are extremely good barbecued. Don't be so quick to judge people. You should be judging the dictators that took the goat away from her.
No no, not judging at all... I hadn’t read about the connection with the game when I commented earlier.
