The goat donning Brett Favre's number 4 seems to be enjoying his new home in the countryside.
He was given a new home after a Minnesota tire store employee found the goat in the trunk of a woman's car.
The owner of the car, who was from St. Paul, stopped at the store after she was having problems with her seat belt. That's when she told the staff she had a live goat in the trunk that she was planning on butchering.
The mechanics opened the trunk and found the goat tied up and spray-painted in Minnesota Vikings colors. Favre's number four was shaved into its side.
They called animal control officers who seized the goat and took it to a vet.
"I think anybody who does something like that definitely needs to be punished in whatever way," says Carlene Shultz, the goat's new owner. "I hope they just don't because it's an animal cruelty thing, it really is."
Shultz has a farm in Eleva, just south of Eau Claire. She adopted the goat named Brett.
Charges against the woman who put the animal in her car are still pending.
