Goat facing seven years in prison

A goat is facing seven years in prison.

The farm animal - which has been referred to as a "repeat offender" - was arrested in Chhattisgarh, central India after he was caught grazing on his neighbour's lawn and is now facing over half a decade behind bars for the bizarre "crime."

Mr Hassan, who owns the goat, told the Indian Express newspaper: "My goat scaled the boundary wall again and ate flowers and vegetables from the garden. It was taken to the police station and then the police also brought me in."

A policeman added: "The goat used to eat plants from its neighbour's garden. They complained about this several times but the owner didn't listen. The watchman has given a written complaint and the goat is in custody."
