    What's for supper? I'm guessing the animal protein in the center of the plate tonight is one of these four-letter words: beef, lamb, pork, fowl, fish, veal or, on hunters' tables, deer. But is anybody serving goat? Some day soon you might. Goat is on its way to becoming a common menu option. Another red meat. Goat is beloved by Latino, Middle Eastern and Italian cooks but is not well known to most Americans. Those who haven't grown up with goat on the table may turn up their noses, imagining a smelly, scruffy animal, a lower-class member of barnyard society....

    FORT WALTON BEACH - It's happened again. A Fort Walton Beach police officer found a sixth decapitated pygmy goat early Wednesday at the intersection of Holmes Boulevard and Memorial Drive. "This animal had been killed very close to the time it was put on the ground," said Dee Thompson, director of animal services for the Panhandle Animal Welfare Society. Thompson said feces were found at the scene, which is common when an animal dies. She also said the preservation of the crime scene leads her to believe the officer happened up on the black and white goat relatively soon after...

    A guy is walking in a field and notices a 15' hole in the ground. He walks to the edge, looks in, but can't see the bottom. He looks around and sees a small rock, which he tosses into the hole. He cocks his head to the left and listens... Nothing. He looks around again, sees a small boulder, lifts it up and carries it to the edge of the hole and tosses it in. He tilts his head and listens... Nothing. He looks around a third times, spies a huge railroad tie nearby. He struggles to drag it to...

    A luckless Bulgarian farmer who was been married three times has decided to try his hand at marriage one last time - with a goat. Stoil Panayotov exchanged his third wife with Elena the eight-year-old goat at a livestock market in March - because she couldn't provide him with a child. The extraordinary deal was concluded in front of a stunned crowd in the market town of Plovdiv, central Bulgaria. advertisement"The day before a friend told me that he has had no luck with women and that he really liked my wife," says the 54-year-old. "The deal was reached when...

    LONDON, United Kingdom (AP) -- The British military said Wednesday it will no longer use goats in experiments to gauge the risks of evacuating a submerged submarine. The tests, conducted for years by the Ministry of Defense, involved herding the animals into a special chamber and then drastically changing the air pressure. Defense minister Derek Twigg said the tests, which were suspended in March 2007, had provided valuable safety information to submarine crews. But a review concluded that no more experiments were needed, though the military said in a statement it could revisit the issue. The tests were meant to...

    SPEAKING AS a guy who grew up on Velveeta and Stroehmann's, it comes as a bit of a surprise that American cheese these days means more than just petroleum-based yellow stuff wrapped in cellophane. Indeed, I think Jeffrey Roberts was compelled to name his book, "The Atlas of American Artisan Cheese" (Chelsea Green Publishing, $35), just so a yutz like me wouldn't think he'd devoted his life's work to the wonders of Kraft Monterey Jack. It turns out, American cheese makers are now holding their own against even les fromageries of France. From ripe brie to moldy blue, they're producing...

    A German farmer lost 10,000 Euros when it was eaten by his goat. But he got it back after having a vet carry out emergency surgery to recover the cash. Martin Radlberger, 34, from Rosenheim in Germany left the 100 Euro notes that he planned to use to buy a tractor on the kitchen table when he went to answer the phone. But when he returned he saw his nanny goat Steffi just finishing off the last crisp new note. He said: "I know I shouldn't have left the cash on the table, but I was only gone for five...

Lott told a scrum of reporters on June 14 that “talk radio is running America — we have to deal with that problem,” adding that the troublemakers who are overwhelmingly opposed to the immigration legislation “don’t even know what’s in the bill.” Now they’re really mad. “The people that he’s actually complaining and whining about now are the ones that tried to defend him when everybody else...

    A Sudanese man who married a goat was in mourning today after his wife died when she swallowed a plastic bag. Charles Tombe shot to fame last year when he tied the knot with Rose. A court ordered him to marry the beast "to save her honour" after he was caught making amorous advances toward the mother-of-one in the middle of the night. Mr Tombe and Rose are believed to have lived happily ever after until her life was cruelly cut short.

    STOCKHOLM, Sweden - Vandals tried to set fire to a giant straw goat in central Sweden but failed to burn down the traditional Christmas monument, which has been soaked with flame-resistant chemicals, officials said Friday. The overnight raid was the season's first attack on the 43-foot-high Christmas goat in the city of Gavle, 90 miles north of Stockholm. The goat has been burned down more than 20 times in the last 40 years in what has become a yule tradition. "Somebody tried to set fire to the right front leg, but the flame-resistant chemical worked 100 percent," said Kurt Lagerholm,...

Everyone except John Kerry’s wife knows at least one person who is richer than they are. How do you buy a present for someone who has everything they might want, except for a handful of things that are out of your price range? The answer is simple: buy them a goat. I am guessing here, but probably your friend does not have a goat already, but if so, buy them another. You can never have too many goats. I should...

Balzano said police find such combinations a couple times a year, usually in wooded areas. "This is an...

All was quiet at Hickey Elementary Sunday until a surveillance camera caught images of a goat on the premises butting heads with a glass door. "Being a male goat, they're kind of territorial," said Jim Dunlap, PISD outdoor learning center. "If they see another male goat, they will try to establish some sort of domain and they will butt heads." The goat's horns rammed into the glass more than two dozen times until he broke through the glass. Dunlap said he believes the goat...

But the goat bullied his way in and the deputy used his Taser. At first, Pinette thought the...

As it turned out, the farm also was a decent place to raise their children and for their children to spawn a new business. The Calumet County couple began commercial goat milk production about 10 years ago at their children’s urging, and it’s led to a soap-making business led by two of their daughters. “Two goats and two peacocks came with the farm,” Mrs. Hedrich said. “We’ve done beef, sheep and hogs, but goats have worked out the best...

The president, popularly known as Bob got out to stretch his legs, and speak to a couple locals. He was holding a bottle of water, when a Billy goat developed a profound interest and chose to pursue it. Whilst Bob swung the bottle at the goat, it quickly and sharply pierced Bob's scrotum, and large bowel.

Two men were seen running from the blaze, one of whom was disguised as Father Christmas, said police.

The goat was named honorary mayor of this rural Riverside County town after drumming up more money for charity than anybody else. But like any office-holder, he wasn't without enemies. Local business leaders, fearing that Opie made the more than 5,000 townsfolk look like yokels, decided he had to go. Opie's supporters kicked back, and the ensuing fracas divided the growing town.

The discovery of the disease -- known scientifically as bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE) in cows -- is a disturbing sign that it can cross over to other species used for human consumption. The presence of BSE in other animals had been viewed as theoretically possible but has never previously been detected. BSE has been linked...

    PAWTUCKET, R.I. (AP) - An apartment tenant has admitted he slaughtered two goats in the building in which he lives. Neighbors called police Wednesday after seeing Pedro Rodrigues lead the goats into the building's basement. The neighbors later found a pool of blood on the basement floor. Rodrigues told police he killed the goats, so a friend could cook them, the Times of Pawtucket reported. The 36-year-old said he slit their throats, and lay them on the floor to bleed out. Fearing that police may think he killed a person, Rodrigues had his friend produce the goat's carcasses. City law...
  • California Town Hires 500 Goats

    MILL VALLEY, Calif. (AP) -- Mill Valley's newest 500 employees work cheap, start early, stay late and never gripe about where their office is located. That's because the employees are all goats. Mill Valley hired the four-legged firefighters to gobble up tinder-dry brush and grass on four acres at the Edgewood Reservoir. "These are working goats," said Fire Battalion Chief Greg Moore, lauding the herd that went to work Tuesday. "They are environmentally friendly." The black, white and brown spotted goats will take 21 days to 30 days to eat the area clear of French broom, acacia, blackberry and dry...

    Inhumane event Re "Brief encounter" (April 13): Last Sunday's picture of two men forcing underwear on a goat for an event at the gay rodeo was unsettling at best. The gay community, known for its compassion and sensitivity, certainly did not display those attributes when they incorporated this inhumane event in the rodeo's schedule of entertainment. If you think this event was not cruelty to animals but merely innocent fun, think again. Forcing any living thing to partake in an unnatural and distressing act is abuse. In addition, the printing of this picture in the name of journalism only added...

    HOLLYWOOD, Florida (Reuters) - A company associated with a group that believes extraterrestrials created mankind claimed Friday that it had produced the first clone of a human being. The company, Clonaid, announced it had created a healthy baby girl who was a clone of the 31-year-old American woman who gave birth to her. No proof was provided for the claim. "I'm very very pleased to announce that the first baby clone is born," Clonaid director Brigitte Boisselier, a former research chemist in France, said at a news conference in Hollywood, north of Miami.
