North Georgia man hospitalized after goat attack

  • Follow Crime & courts

COLBERT, Ga. — An 88-year-old north Georgia man was in intensive care after being attacked by an aggressive goat for about an hour.

The Athens Banner-Herald reports that Vestal Davis was hospitalized with serious injuries after the Sunday attack.

A Madison County Sheriff's Office report says Davis told a deputy that a neighbor's goat charged him when he went outside to his shop. Davis said that every time he moved to get up, the goat would attack him again.

Davis told the deputy the attack continued for about an hour until the goat walked into the shop and he could get up and call 911.

The goat's owner told the deputy the goat escaped from its pen, but he didn't know about the attack.

Sheriff Kip Thomas says investigators plan to charge the owner with allowing livestock to roam free.

Oh my goodness. Thanks be to God this man didn't die by attack of goat. That would have been just plain embarrassing. He has already reached the ripe old age of 88 and something like a goat takes him out. That just wouldn't have been right.

What's for Dinner?

The young couple invited their elderly pastor for Sunday dinner. While they were in the kitchen preparing the meal, the minister asked their son what they were having.

"Goat," the little boy replied.

"Goat?" replied the startled man of the cloth, "Are you sure about that?"

"Yep," said the youngster. "I heard Dad say to Mom, 'Today is just as good as any to have the old goat for dinner.'
