Pet goat taken on drunken joyride
A man drank 12 pints of cider at a party before stealing a pet goat and taking it for a ride in a stolen car, magistrates in Neath have been told.
Carl Myles, 20, of Trallwn, Swansea, untethered the animal and bundled it into the back of a farmer's Volvo before taking to the wheel.
He was given a two-year ban and told to carry out 120 hours unpaid work after admitting aggravated vehicle taking.
Prosecutor Hayley Fackrell said: "Myles then reversed the car in panic and hit Mr Leyshon's tractor.
"The farmer pulled Myles out of the car - then looked into the back seat and was surprised to see a large white goat."
Defending, Huw Davies asked: "Did you know you had a goat with you and did you have any intention of driving the vehicle on the road?" Myles replied: "No."
District Judge Richard Williams told Myles: "It seems to me you did this purely out of immense stupidity."
