PETA Wont Be Happy About The Slaughtering Of Favre Goats
Total Pro Sports – Just when it seemed as though the NFL was back on PETA’s good side, with Michael Vick being a changed man and now speaking on behalf of animal lovers, a few incidents has put the league back in the dog house.
Yesterday pictures surfaced of Vikings running back (and NFL fantasy football stud) Adrian Peterson with a duck he shot while hunting, and now we are told that a woman was found with a Brett Favre-painted goat in her trunk which she was about to have slaughtered at a butcher shop.
The woman was passing through Winona, Minnesota on her way to St. Paul, when she stopped at Tires Plus to replace a belt. It is very likely the woman was from Packer-land as Winona is located along the Minnesota-Wisconsin boarder. She eventually told auto repairman James Prusci what was in her trunk:
Prusci started the paperwork.
“Oh, by the way,” the woman said. “I have a goat in my trunk.”
Prusci didn’t think he heard her right.
“Yes, a goat,” the woman said. “And it’s alive.”
She planned to butcher the animal later but was passing through Winona on her way to St. Paul when the car broke down, Prusci remembered her saying.
The woman, and a man and child who were waiting for her outside, left while Prusci and other workers began the repairs.
After about 10 minutes, they could hear the goat crying.
“We cracked open the trunk, you know, so it could breathe,” Prusci said. “And sure enough, there it was. It kind of poked its head up.” [Winona Daily News]
Thankfully the goat was still alive, but it was painted in the Vikings purple and gold, and had the number four shaved into its sides. The workers left the goat in the trunk while working on the car but later checked on it and noticed it was not very active. That was when they decided to call animal control.
The goat was seized and is in the care of a local vet. It is unknown whether the woman was cited by police.
This is perhaps one of the most telling displays of what Packer fans think of Favre. If you were wondering whether the former cheesehead quarterback would receive a warm reception when he returns to Green Bay on November 1st, think again. I’d expect to see a few more Favre-goats being sacrificed during tailgaiting festivities in the Lambeau field parking lot.
