According to officials, an 88-year-old Georgia man suffered fatal personal injuries in an attack by an unusual animal. The man was fatally attacked outside his north Georgia home by a goat.
According to Madison County Coroner Michelle Cleveland, 88-year-old Vestal Davis was pronounced dead at Athens Regional Medical Center in Athens, Georgia on August 28.
According to a report from the Madison County, Georgia sheriff’s office, Davis told a deputy that he had gone outside when he was charged by a neighbor’s goat and knocked to the ground repeatedly.
The deputy said that the owner of the goat, a 69-year-old neighbor, said the animal escaped from its pen, but he wasn’t aware of the attack.
Cleveland said the district attorney would determine charges, if any are to be filed.
