Falling Mountain Goat Hits Hiker

If I’ve said it once, I’ve said it a thousand times, “Some days you’re the dog and some days you’re the hydrant.”

Today happens to be one where I feel like a steel fixture painted red.

This morning my kibble was served dry, my water was warm and the grass I peed on was already wet. That, my friends, is a crap sandwich for an old veteran like me. And not the good kind of crap sandwich (kitty snickers on pumpernickel) I enjoy.

I guess it beats the night my mother had, though. She had to clean up my brother Goliath’s throw up twice last night. Yeah, twice. The old man? He just slept through it…or at least pretended to.

On the brighter side of things, at least we weren’t hiking in the Austrian mountains. Check out the story below.

An Austrian hiker has been hospitalised after being hit by a falling mountain goat and tumbling 50ft to the ground.

Walter Kaiser, 59, was rushed to emergency services in Filzmoos, Austria, but the goat remained unhurt and ran off after the incident.

Kaiser was flown to Schladming Hospital by helicopter and suffered a number of minor injuries.

He was knocked off the side of Hochkesslekopf Mountain by the plunging goat during his climb.

Walmart has falling prices. Austria has falling goats.
