In a shocking and hilarious incident a goat in Uttar Pradesh was arrested for not wearing a mask. The officials picked up the goat and took it to the police station in a jeep. When the owner of the goat learnt that the police had taken it away, he rushed to the police station. He pleaded with the cops and the police finally let him take back his goat but warned him not to allow the animal to roam on the road.
Refuting the news, circle officer, Anwarganj police station, Saifuddin Beg, however, said that the police had found a youth without a mask, taking the goat along. “When he saw the police, he ran away leaving the goat behind so the policemen brought the goat to the police station. Later, we handed over the goat to its owner,” he said. One of the policemen who had brought the goat admitted that they found a lockdown violation because the goat was without a mask.“People are now making their dogs wear a mask so why not a goat?” he asked. Check out the video here which has since then gone viral on social media.
