Headlines I wish were NOT literally true, #1

"Goat detained over armed robbery"

"Police in Nigeria are holding a goat on suspicion of attempted armed robbery."

"Vigilantes took the black and white beast to the police saying it was an armed robber who had used black magic to transform himself into a goat to escape arrest after trying to steal a Mazda 323."

luckily, the police are (kind of) suspending judgement for the time being:

"We cannot confirm the story, but the goat is in our custody. We cannot base our information on something mystical. It is something that has to be proved scientifically, that a human being turned into a goat,"

Well at least the goat is in custody. You just never know

I think it probably got instructions over the internet, and then just got caught when the other robbers ran off.

A Skype goat, if you will.

Probably they need psicologycal advise because it is quite impossible that someone can turns into a goat.
