A cranky goat who’s had enough of a Florida deputy helping it posted a popular video. Clay County Sheriff Michelle Cook posted footage of the amusing encounter on Facebook on Sunday (September 10), showing the furry pal repeatedly headbutting Deputy Patrick McFetridge. This is the story of the Florida head-butting goat lol
The video begins with McFetridge opening the gate and the goat sniffing his legs. The enraged goat strikes from behind.
“Ouch!” the deputy laughs as the goat continues to attack. Another deputy laughs at the absurd situation. The beast almost misses McFetridge again when it returns to the property.
“Back it up,” he said. “You’re resisting right now, and I need you to stop.”
As of Tuesday morning (September 12), the head-butting goat video saw over 5.5 million views and 94,000 likes.
Florida deputies regularly wrestle wildlife to return them home or protect humans. After finding a baby alligator in a backyard pool, a Florida deputy had to rescue it.
