ABC 7 Outtake: Linda Carson vs. the goat
January 26, 2013
PALMETTO, Fla. – A valuable lesson was learned by ABC 7’s Linda Carson Tuesday: never turn your back on a goat.
She was at the Manatee County Fair in Palmetto recording a track for her story about kids that raise goats, when one goat decided that it was not pleased to have her in the pen – charging her and knocking her to the floor. It even came back for a second charge.
Thankfully Linda look the whole thing in stride and laughed it off. She says it didn’t even hurt.
She says she was also thankful to learn afterwards that the sawdust and straw that she landed on was fresh and the animals had not soiled it yet.
Linda Carson received Jimmy Kimmel's tongue-in-cheek "Excellence In Reporting" award January 25, 2013.
