We have heard that poachers remove the horns from rhinos for traditional medicine or to sell. But, have you ever heard of people removing goat horns?! The goat you see here was frankly mutilated by an inexperienced veterinarian. The horns were burned off, and they will never grow back. The goat’s owner had been persuaded to “debud” the horns.
When Leanne Lauricella, the founder of Goats of Anarchy, learned what happened to this little fellow, she adopted him and named him Lawson.
Lawson was born without the middle section of his back legs – so, he would need an amputation and a special cart to help him get around. Leanne was willing to get this done for him – after all, he deserves the chance for a happy life.
