Va. Authorities Find Goat in Trunk at Checkpoint

June 15, 2010

Authorities in Bedford County say a regional drunken-driving checkpoint led to the discovery of a goat, bound and shoved in the trunk of a car.

The Bedford Sheriff's Office says the car driven by 32-year-old Fiona Ann Enderdy of Washington, D.C., pulled up to the checkpoint on Friday night when deputies heard noises from the trunk.

When asked what was in the trunk, the driver said she bought a goat from a farmer to give to the four passengers in her car, who are from Kenya but reside in Lynchburg. The goat was panting heavily and animal control officers say the temperature in the trunk was 94 degrees.

Enderdy told deputies she is from the United Kingdom and transporting goats in this manner was acceptable there. She was charged with cruelty to an animal and released.
