Now, I realize that in different parts of the world there is a deep belief in the dark arts of witchcraft.
However….a story about a supposed car thief who, according to witnesses, used black magic to turn himself into a goat to escape.
“The group of vigilante men came to report that while they were on patrol they saw some hoodlums attempting to rob a car. They pursued them. However one of them escaped while the other turned into a goat,” Kwara state police spokesman Tunde Mohammed told Reuters by telephone.
Hey! This could be a really good movie or how about a comedy skit on Saturday Night Live. Oh wait, SNL already had Goat Boy. Dangit.
How did the authorities respond to inquiries on the story?
“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.”
Yeah, I think the scientists will get right on that one. Darwin would be proud.
