Three Men Face Animal Cruelty Charges For Blowing Cannabis Smoke In A Goat’s Face

Three young men from Taunton, Massachusetts are being charged with animal cruelty after police discovered a video of them allegedly trying to get a goat high.

Lorenzo Kelley, 20, Nuno Camara, 18, and Jared Jorge, 21 have all received charges for animal cruelty after Kelley shared a video on Snapchat of them apparently blowing smoke in the face of a goat owned by Camara's family. If found guilty, each of them could a maximum sentence of 7 years in prison.

"Basically, they took the goat against its will, had a chain around it’s neck," Taunton Police Lieutenant Eric Nichols told Boston25 News. "They were pulling on it, they were straddling the goat at one point and what we believe on the video is exposing the goat to marijuana."

Taunton Animal Control Officer Manuel Massa says the goat seems to be in good health, though it is likely to be re-homed at this point.

"It is definitely strange," said Mass. "I don't know what would bring these gentlemen to do what they did."

Although many veterinarians support giving medical marijuana for pets, getting animals high for a joke still isn't cool.

While most trends seem to move towards safer and more well-protected activities for children, this might be the wrong approach when it comes to playgrounds. At least, that’s what a recent video from Vox’s By Design series, which explores the concept of “adventure parks,” argues. "They can play with any dangerous tool, they can take really dangerous risks and overcome them, and this builds up a tremendous sense of self-confidence in themselves," Marjory Allen, landscape architect and the person most responsible for popularizing the adventure park concept, said in an archival interview.
