First of all, you need to know that there are goats in the Jardin des Tuileries that tend to the lawns of the iconic gardens, introduced several years ago as a form of “eco-grazing”. But more importantly– that’s a goat, on the Parisian metro– stolen from the Tuileries on November 13th and smuggled underground onto the Line 1 train, in the most inexplicable news piece we’ve encountered for quite some time. Here’s some video courtesy of bystanders at the scene…
Who IS that guy? Where was he planning on going and what was he planning on doing with the goat– who from the looks of it, seems to be pretty fond of his kidnapper. Can goats get Stockholm syndrome? How did it get through the ticket barriers at rush hour in the first place? Is the suspect a disgruntled shepherd? SO many questions!
Having caused considerable chaos, the man was arrested and the goat was taken away, but we’ll keep you informed on any updates and information we come by.
These goats, “des Fossés” are an endangered species. In order to avoid the use of machinery, goats were introduced to graze on the city’s public lawns, and have been especially welcomed by the gardeners as they are able to get to the crevices that are hard to reach with lawn mowers.
Looks like this goat just had the ride of his life.
