Goat rams into California strip club

Hank Piecura got to Lynx Gentlemen’s Club early Saturday morning to find blood and broken glass.
He could not believe what security video showed.
“If I didn’t see it myself on surveillance tape, I wouldn’t have believed it either,” said Piecura.
A 150-pound goat smashed its way into his business. It gets on its hind legs and rams into the quarter-inch thick glass. It breaks through one door, then starts ramming another one before trotting inside.
Why would a goat try to break into a strip club? The best the owner can figure, the goat saw its reflection in the door and got aggressive. The goat spent the next half-hour dazed, staring at itself in a mirror. A man comes in and chases the goat further inside. Piecura thinks the man heard the break-in from the gas station across the street.
An hour later, the same man returns and chases the goat away. The animal did not damage anything else inside the club. Piecura followed the goat’s trail of blood, but it led him nowhere.
“I drove all over the area,” said Piecura. “Everybody around here said they don’t have goats so it had to come from either on the other side of the freeway or it came out of some trailer over at the truck stop.”
The attack caused about $2,000 in damage. Piecura said the repair costs will not set him back too much. He recently bought the club and hopes to have it opened by this weekend. He will keep the reflective doors covered with paper until he can get a security fence.
“Tell you the truth I didn’t know there was goats either,” said Piecura. “So what’s next? Bulls? I don’t know
