Three men from Taunton, Massachusetts were charged with animal cruelty after allegedly blowing marijuana smoke into a goat’s face in a video.
The July 10 video, which circulated social media, allegedly showed the trio taking a goat out of its pen and put a chain around its back. Smoke can be seen blowing into the animal’s face as the men cheer and laugh.
Taunton police were notified of the alleged abuse on Tuesday and were able to identify the men and locate the goat. The suspects were identified as Lorenzo Kelley, 20, Nuno Camara Jr., 18, and Jared Jorge, 21.
The goat, which belonged to a relative of Camara, was taken by Animal Control, who will have custody of the animal through the investigation. The goat is expected to okay.
