Dateline: Stringtown Rising Farm
Farm officials say at least four chickens remain in bunkers after an explosion on Monday. It was around 5 p.m. when the explosion occurred, rocking the farm’s goat house. No significant damage was reported to surrounding buildings and no injuries have been verified. Farmers were unable to contain the explosion, but alerted authorities of the potential public danger. Authorities warned nearby residents as well as farmers and animals to stay indoors if possible, with doors and windows closed, though no evacuations were ordered. Shortly before the explosion, a goat known on the streets as Rotunda was seen lurking in the area, and is currently being retained in custody.
The explosion was heard miles away. Residents across the countryside said they heard a loud boom and that they could hear the earth shake.
Emergency crews were unable to do anything but look for wattles and bring some hay.
According to one Woman on the scene, “Luckily, the goat house was built for this sort of thing.”
When the dust cleared, two tiny kids were discovered inside the goat house with the suspect. She had no comment on the disaster other than to say, “I’m a very small goat. I don’t know what all the fuss is about.”
She’s expected to be held in the goat house for an undetermined period of time pending further questioning, and fondling of the kids.
P.S. Two. Both boys. Fainter crosses.
