ELEVA (WKOW) -- Brett the goat is safe at a farm in Eleva, Wisconsin, after a woman threatened to slaughter the animal in payback for Brett Favre's decision to go to the Vikings.
Brett the goat was bound in a car's trunk, when a mechanic in Winona, Minnesota called animal control to save the goat. The driver told the mechanic she was going to kill it in repayment to Favre's decision.
The goat had been spray painted purple and gold with a number four shaved into his side.
Duane and Carlene Schultz of Eleva were contacted by Winona Animal Control to pick up Brett.
He still has some paint in his fur and a four shaved into his side, but the Schultz's say he's fitting in fine at the farm.
"People take their sports a little too seriously," said Carlene, "and don't realize it's just a game. You don't have to involve poor defenseless animals in something like this whatsoever."
