Alabama woman arrested for stealing neighbor’s goat & painting it
BALDWIN COUNTY, AL / WALA – A Gulf Shores woman was arrested for cruelty to animals after taking her neighbors’ goat and painting it without permission.
Erica Marie Farmer, 34, is accused of stealing and painting her neighbors’ livestock. She is also facing a second charge of theft of property.
The farmer’s loan was set at $ 6,000.
Officials said Farmer took the goat from her neighbors’ property and brought it to their home to show off their child. At some point, Farmer decided to paint the animal and post the photos on her social media account, MPs said.
When the goat’s owner noticed it was missing, they called another neighbor who said they had seen Farmer’s photos of the painted goats online.
The owner of the goat called the authorities. The goat was still in the suspect’s house when the MPs arrived.
