Woman Facing Felony After Stealing/Painting Neighbor’s Goat
Alabama, a Gulf Shores woman, was arrested for animal cruelty after police alleged she painted her neighbor’s goat and took it without permission.
Erica Marie Farmer, 34, was arrested for theft of property (2nd charge), but theft of livestock is a criminal offense in Alabama.
MPs say Farmer decided to remove the goat from the neighbor’s property to take home and show it to her child. At some point she decided to paint the goat blue and green.
The goat’s owner noticed it was missing and called another neighbor who told them they had seen the photos of a painted goat on social media. At that point, the goat’s owner called the police.
The farmer had the goat in their possession when the police arrived.
