A pet goat has been robbed by horrific police after it was allegedly stolen from a residence and sexually assaulted in a public bathroom.
The animal was removed from a home in Branxholm, an hour east of Launceston, Tasmania, early in the morning of June 10.
The goat was taken to a public bathroom and mistreated, the Mercury reported.
Scottsdale Police Sergeant Brent O’Mahony said police had to swab the goat to see if a violation had occurred.
“There were concerns about the goat’s welfare and a vet examination was done as part of the investigation process,” he said.
“This process involved taking DNA swabs to help determine what happened during this incident.
“Police have spoken to the goat’s owner, who has filed a formal complaint with the police.”
