    Singer, if you need bail, I'm here for you Bud !

    Repair shop finds goat in car trunk


    Auto repairman James Prusci has seen some unusual things left in the cars he works on, but nothing quite like what he found Friday in the trunk of a Chevy.

    A man came into the Tires Plus in Winona just before noon, asking if the shop had time to replace a belt.

    Prusci started the paperwork.

    "Oh, by the way," the man said. "I have a goat in my trunk."

    Prusci didn't think he heard him right.

    "A what?"

    "Yes, a goat," the man said. "And it's alive."

    The man, who turned out to be
    Winona resident " Steve Singer " planned to butcher the animal later but was passing through Winona on his way to St. Paul when the car broke down, Prusci remembered him saying.

    The man , left while Prusci and other workers began the repairs.

    After about 10 minutes, they could hear the goat crying.

    "We cracked open the trunk, you know, so it could breathe," Prusci said. "And sure enough, there it was. It kind of poked its head up."

    The goat had been painted purple and gold - the colors for the Minnesota Vikings. Shaved into its side was the No. 4 - the number of Brett Favre, who made his Vikings debut Friday night in a preseason game in the Twin Cities.

    The goat was lying on its side, tied at its feet. Prusci said it had some pretty big horns.

    The workers closed the trunk - they couldn't have a goat wandering around the shop. But when they checked on the animal later, it wasn't moving as much.

    They called animal control.

    Mr.Singer arrived to pick up the car. Prusci told the man that he didn't approve of what he done to the goat. He paid and left.

    But as Mr.Singer walked toward his car, an animal control vehicle and two police cars pulled up, Prusci said.

    He's not sure what happened next.

    Winona Police Sgt. Chris Nelson confirmed Prusci's story Saturday morning, saying the goat was in the care of a local veterinarian.

    Animal control officer Wendy Peterson, who investigated the incident, could not be reached for comment. It is unclear if Mr. Singer has cited.

    As for Prusci, he's just thankful to hear the goat is OK.

    "It was definitely the most out-of-the norm thing I've ever seen."


    I LOVE THE SMELL OF VICTORY IN THE MORNING AIR.

    Here's the actual link to the story.

    http://www.winonadailynews.com/news/local/article_9872aaf0-8f8f-11de-a32a-001cc4c002e0.html

    BTW, I may just have to bail you out.

    Copying someone else's article & changing a few words & passing it off as your own is against the law.


    Even posting an article in it's entirety is against the law if you do not have the owners permission to do so.

    I'll bail him out. It was worth it. That's some funny pooh !
