Residents of Londrina, Brazil recently filmed a maladjusted goat on a hilarious rampage as he terrorized bystanders, motorcyclists and even the cameraman, knocking people over and running them off the road before he was finally subdued.
The footage shows the belligerent billy headbutting an older woman onto the ground, drawing the ire of a man nearby who tries to kick the goat in the face. Unsuccessful, he engages the crazed kid in what looks like a game of tag around a tree, flailing at the creature as it stares him down.
Finally, the goat tries to prevent two motorcyclists from riding away, headbutting even them into the ground before running after the cameraman, who laughs the whole way. It all comes to an end after one man, apparently seeing enough, puts hands to the goat’s head and wraps a rope around its neck.
Despite the clear misfortune of the villagers, it’s almost impossible to not laugh watching the scene unfold.
