Still Covering The Crime Beat

Well, since I recently made fun of the stolen cow that got stuck inside a Hyundai Elantra just north of here, I suppose it was only a matter of time until my Motherland of the Estados Unidos tried to up the ante for odd, animal-related crime. I saw this article in a section of the La Nación called “Caja de Cambios,” which means “Gearbox.” It’s a section of the paper with filler material related to new cars and gas prices, and it provides an outlet for people to complain about the shitty potholes everywhere, and to send in pictures of tricked out Hyundais with razor-blade doors and prominently-featured neon accessories.
In any case, I found this article below:

It reads:
-ALABAMA- A goat was arrested, a Mercedes-Benz was lightly damaged and a dog went for a ride. All of this happened when a lady who was driving the Mercedes saw a goat and a dog playing on national highway 72, in northern Alabama.
The goat jumped over the vehicle and didn’t want to get down. Later, an officer captured it and put it in his patrol car, but then the dog jumped inside the car, and for that they also took it away in the police car.”
So, the score is now even. Costa Rica: Your turn. I know you won’t disappoint me.
