Wow, James your parents must be so proud. We were looking at the goats on the first Tuesday of the Fair when a drunk was trying to let a goat drink from his beer. The goat tried to grab the beer and down to the ground it went. We were in hysterics. That guy had just bought an $8 beer for himself, hadn't taken a sip and it ended up on the ground. And that goat didn't even call him the next day. hahahaha.

Book him, Danno -- a man who'll do that to a helpless animal will also do that to a helpless relative, friend or child. You don't even have to care about the pig to understand that this young inebriate needs an important life lesson -- denominated in months or more.
Of course, food animals already live abjectly lousy lives, by and large -- assault should be added to misery!
