Muslim Sacrifice Goat Smashes Through Window To Escape

This is the moment a sacrificial goat gives its owners the run around during the Muslim Eid al-Adha festival and enters a shop before crashing through the front window in a bid to escape their dinner plate.

The incident was filmed in the district of Serik in the south-western Turkish province of Antalya during the Islamic holiday Eid al-Adha, also known as the Festival of the Sacrifice.

The goat was bought as a sacrifice, but ended up causing more damage than its value after smashing the shop window.

Owner Celal Yilmaz told local media: “My goat was tied up at home, but managed to escape and entered a nearby shop.

The damage was paid by the goat owner

“When we chased it in the shop, the goat panicked and smashed the front window to get out.

“I bought the goat for 850 TRY (126 GBP), but I had to pay 1,500 TRY (223 GBP) to the shop owner for the broken window.”

Meanwhile, the owner of the Ersoy Sahin electrical appliance store said: “An untied goat entered the shop and I told its carers not to scare it as it could damage some of the goods, but the animal smashed the window and got out.”

According to local media, the uninjured goat was caught and was later sacrificed by the Muslim owner to celebrate Eid al-Adha.
