Driver Fined $100 For Having Goat In Trunk
Roanoke Times via WTAE.com ^ | August 20, 2010

Posted on 08/23/2010 12:23:03 PM PDT by rightwingintelligentsia

BEDFORD, Va. -- A driver has been convicted of animal cruelty and fined $100 after Virginia authorities found a goat stuffed in the trunk of her car.

Bedford County sheriff's deputies discovered the goat bound and in the trunk during a drunken driving checkpoint in June.

Fiona Ann Enderby of Washington, D.C., told police she bought the goat from a farmer to give to four passengers in her car, who are from Kenya but reside in Lynchburg in central Virginia.

The goat was panting heavily and animal control officers say the temperature in the trunk was 94 degrees.

Cruelty to animals should have a bigger fine than $100.

The police officer had an interesting day. After the goat incident, the next person he pulled over had six chickens in his car, but they were given a warning and told to give three of the chickens to the county.

The police wrote on his report at the end of the day that the county had gotten “money for mutton and the chicks for free.”

Sorry...that was awful...

My goats are much too civilized to ride in the trunk ... in fact they are most civilized than most Kenyans.

What's the difference between trussing one and carrying in the back of a pickup and putting it in the trunk? It's a farm animal, not a pet.

Cruelty to animals is burning puppies or gut-shooting cats. Or starving an animal. Transporting an animal is not cruelty.

“money for mutton and the chicks for free.”

Mutton ping.

JERRY: Hey, salad's got nothin' on this mutton.

HOLLY: That is so funny. Did you just make that up?

JERRY: I wish I could take credit for it. It's actually the line my butcher uses when we're chewing the fat.

Cruelty to animals should have a bigger fine than $100.

Animal cruelty shouldn't include putting your groceries in your trunk. A '95 degree' trunk doesn't seem all that excessive in temperature for the middle of June. But the image included in an earlier story gives us a clue as to what animal control authorities think is an acceptable transit condition:

A shame none of those reporters who took pictures of the goat trapped in an animal control steel box happened to bring a thermometer with them to tell us just how warm that tiny space the goat was shoved into by authorities was, containment that likely lasted longer than the car ride that the goat had in the trunk, yet is apparently fine free for them to do it, don't you dare do it yourself. Add insult to injury, this is a drunk driving checkpoint, AKA, open season to search without probable cause any vehicle which would normally require probable cause to pull it over.

Oh and someone's dinner was stolen in the process, and gosh, you get to pay a hundred bucks for the privilege.

Waste of time and money for the justice system. They’re going to slit its throat and eat it. They shouldn’t have stressed it if they wanted it to taste good. So now what happens to the goat - adoption by a couple of guys from SF?

Well - wait until they build all the “Super-Mosques” across the country - then I hope someone will posts the photo’s of all the “different” customs that are brought into these areas...instead of seeing photo’s of “People at Walmart” - we can have Photo’s of “Hadji at Prayer”...everything goes in a truck when it comes to third country nationals (TCN’s)....

The cops almost had to taze the goat to subdue it, but they decided a billy club was more appropriate.

No.

I don't see much difference, except the goat was better protected from the elements.

Being locked in a trunk is little different from locking a dog in a car with the window barely cracked open. It becomes an oven on a hot day.

Better they should get a horse to transport their goats.
