Flower-eating goat has charges against it dropped in court

Gary and his owner, Jim
It's not only in Nigeria that they have some ode people o...lol...some of them can be found in Australia. Hehehe! According to Metro UK, a flower-eating goat named Gary has been cleared of vandalism after an Australian judge dismissed the case at a court in Sydney.

His owner Jim Dezarnaulds had been ordered to pay a 440 Australian dollar (£290) fine after Gary was spotted snacking on a flower bed outside the city’s Museum of Contemporary Art.

The case was dismissed however, after a judge ruled that neither Gary nor his owner could be held accountable for the crime. Lol. Read more after the cut...



Magistrate Carolyn Barkell said there was no evidence that Gary, who had his own lawyer, had been brought there to intentionally eat the flowers.

‘This is actually an abuse of the laws of nature, I mean it was a goat eating grass,’ Mr Dezarnaulds said after the verdict was announced.
‘I’m a comedian, I can come up with jokes, but it’s pretty hard to compete with cops coming up with this stuff. ‘It’s obviously a joke, but the fact that we’re here it’s gone a bit beyond a joke.’

Gary, who was not required to give evidence, did not comment on the verdict upon leaving court. (lol).

Mr Dezarnaulds added: ‘Gary taught the cops a valuable lesson and that’s don’t bite off more than you can chew.’
Gary became an internet star after news of his plight went viral, with his official Facebook page racking up over 10,000 likes.

The judge didn't do well at all, its true the goat is a grass eating animal but that does not mean that his owner should not be help responsible. For some of us calling this stupidity, it is not. If u go to country like Dubai, where it hardly rains and govt spends lots of money just to keep flowers alive, then u will understand that allowing ur animals to graze on flowers is a big crime.

Secondly for those saying its stupidity, in our local villages there are laws available that whosoever allows his/her domestic animals to graze on people's farms, that such animals should be arrested and taken to the house of the eldest or the Chief task force officer in that village, till the owner pays fine for the crime committed by his animal. So why are Nigerians full of hypocrisy?
