A normally pleasant billy goat turned gruff and, for his troubles, was zapped three times with a Taser gun. Dodge the billy goat snapped a leash and charged at Dawn Pinette, knocking her to the ground Wednesday about 35 miles west of Charleston.

"All I could do was grab his horns and scream bloody murder," Pinette, 38, said.

Her daughter called police and Colleton County Deputy Jeff Scott arrived to try to help Pinette up. But the goat bullied his way in and the deputy used his Taser.

At first, Pinette thought the goat was dead.

"Within a few seconds he was back up and going after him again," she said.

Deputies were finally able to get the goat in the back of a pickup truck, but not before stunning it twice more.

It's apparently not the first time a Taser has been used to subdue an animal.

Steve Tuttle, a spokesman for Taser International, said he has heard a Taser being used on two moose in the Yukon as well as on a bear.

"An ostrich would be the oddest one," Tuttle said.

The goat was owned by one of Pinette's neighbors who plans to find him a new home, authorities said. That's fine with Pinette.

"He's too old for goat burgers," she said.

Now that would have some Darwin potential.

Yup, either one (moose or bear) sounds like a bad idea to me.

I wonder if it would be enough to actually take down/incapacitate an animal as large as a bear. Or would it just scare it or drive it off with pain? From what I hear, OC is also very effective against bears.

I learned to take down a mean billy goat with a cut down 2x4 at six. Taser, come on a night stick will do a better job. And the goat will remember the headache.
