Funky Cabra: Goat on a Moped in Tenerife

At least it was wearing a crash helmet!

At least it was wearing a crash helmet! (Their subtitle.)

Honestly, you can't make this stuff up. Newspaper ElMundo.es report this item from Spanish newsagency, EFE: "Agents from the Local Police in Santa Cruz, Tenerife intercepted a moped after detecting that it had three occupants (riders) and, upon proceeding with their identification, verified that one of them was a goat, upon which they had placed the corresponding helmet for protection."

According to a press communique from the town hall in the island's capital, the offence took place in the Avenida de Anaga, the seafront road.

The goat was the middle of the three occupants and none of the three had any documentation on them, the report says. The humans were charged for not having a drivers licence, nor insurance, nor log book for the moped, which was impounded.

Well, I've heard of people calling their other halves an old goat before, but in this case, it appears that s/he could really have been. :-D

Offense? What offense? Why were they stopped in the first place?

I'm sure the goat was thrilled that it didn't have to walk! ;)

Yes, Grokodile, I absolutely agree with you. Unfortunately, having three occupants on a moped is a driving offence. At least the goat wasn't charged with anything!
