Goat Head Butts Florida TV Reporter, Knocking Her Down in the Pen


A Florida reporter learned the hard way never to turn your back (or side) to a goat.

WWSB-TV’s Linda Carson was signing off from a report from inside the goat pen at the Manatee County Fair in Palmetto, Fla. when a goat suddenly charged her and knocked her to the ground.

Her shocked “Auuuggghhh!” is a sound that will surely live in YouTube infamy.

Luckily, Carson got right up and laughed the whole thing off — until the goat came back for a second go-around, eliciting another shriek.

Carson said she was glad to know the sawdust and straw in the pen was fresh.
