Good grief, WHY? (No, not why was he arrested. Why would you want them chopped off at all, let alone on someone's kitchen table.)
It also turns out it's a somewhat old story, although they only got around to charging him for that one last week. He's apparently castrated more than 50 men on that very kitchen table. (Again, WHY do they want that?)
And apparently this insanity seems to be going around, in various forms:
Alcoholic goat-mayor is castrated by cowboy: They called Jim Bob Hargrove a coward, but it takes balls to castrate an alcoholic goat. Especially when that goat is the local mayor. And it probably requires even more nerve when that cloven-hoofed politician is owned by a Texan millionaire, trying to impress a Hollywood actress. The people of Brewster County, Texas, found themselves at the centre of such an unlikely scenario this week when Mr Hargrove went on trial accused of emasculating Clay Henry III with a kitchen knife last November. It was said that once the deed was done, Mr Hargrove, 41, popped the hircine mayor's testicles into the fridge, effectively freezing Mr Henry's assets. Mr Hargrove has pleaded not guilty.
Now let me get this straight-ish:
The man castrated a goat.
The goat was the mayor. (In fact, the goat seems to be the heir to a technically democratic dynasty. His sire was mayor, and his grandsire was mayor. How ... different.)
The mayor was apparently owned by a millionaire, who was apparently not amused.Posted by iain at August 26, 2002 12:34 PM
