The biggest story of the day according to Stuff comes from the Taranaki Daily News:
I love that headline. I think it’s the fact that they’ve emphasised that the goat is old to make it a more pitiful character.
Or maybe it’s how the headline paints a picture of an almost elemental conflict between the forces of evil as represented by taggers and the forces of decency as represented by an old goat.
Also, if they’re so worried about the goat’s feelings about its appearance maybe they shouldn’t be describing is as ‘defaced’ as if it’s some inanimate piece of property.
If only it could have put on a frowny face for the camera.
