GRAYSON, Ga. (AP) – Authorities in Georgia have charged a man with aggravated cruelty to animals for allegedly forcing a goat to ingest whiskey and cocaine.
The Gwinnett County Sheriff’s Office said in a statement 28-year-old Sergio Palomares-Guzman was arrested Feb. 15 in connection with a videotaped incident believed to be from early January.
The sheriff’s office says Palomares-Guzman lived on a ranch where he worked as a horse trainer. The release says video shows him holding the goat’s horns and forcing its mouth open while another man gives it substances. That man and a third suspect remain unidentified.
The sheriff’s office says the goat is healthy and has since been adopted.
It’s unclear whether Palomares-Guzman has a lawyer. Online jail records say he’s being held for the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency.
