Video: Belligerent Brazilian Billy Goat Terrorizes Londrina Residents
Recently-posted video footage of a belligerent Brazilian billy goat terrorizing residents of a southern city is sure to go viral.
The video, which was posted on YouTube on Monday, shows an ornery goat attacking random bystanders in Londrina, Paraná. The animal charges and head-butts various residents, including an elderly woman, a cameraman and even a pair of motorcycle riders.
It’s all fun and games until the grumpy goat knocks the old woman into the street. The motorcycle riders didn’t fare much better; they also take a spill after getting rammed from behind.
At some point in the video, the goat goes from being the terrorist to the terrorized as various townsfolk attempt to subdue him. One man assaults the poor animal, kicking and punching at it. Later, we see the goat tied to a signpost and handled roughly by a man holding it by a rope.
This isn’t the first crazy goat ‘attack’ to be caught on video, although those who get charged by ‘good goats gone bad’ often provoke the animals into action.
Sometimes goats just act plain loony, like in this 2011 video, in which a British soldier in Afghanistan is relentlessly pestered by what his buddies called a “Taliban goat,” although it appears unclear whether the animal is angered or enamored by the Welsh Guardsman.
