Goat Allegedly Eats Public Art Project
A goat from Nassau County, New York has been charged with eating a sculpture outside the Hempstead Public Library. The sculpture, which went missing last week, depicted a group of children at play and was made from recycled tin cans.
But the goat maintains his innocence.
“He’s being, for lack of a better term, scapegoated,” said his lawyer, John Levine. “It’s a complete myth that goats eat tin cans. My client is actually a very picky eater.”
Library officials could not be reached for comment at press time.
