Goat Facing 7 Years in Jail for Eating Grass


There's a goat in trouble in India and because of that it's looking at 7 years in prison.

It's the classic neighbor vs neighbor argument. One neighbor has a goat that keeps scaling the boundary wall to go over and eat the neighbor's flowers. So the neighbor with the flowers filed charges against the neighbor after it happened time and time again.

But that leaves the goat at home to continue to eat flowers. So he filed charges against the goat, too, and, because India courts have a sense of humor, it's legitimate. The goat is facing the same prison length as its human, 7 years.
