The End of the Goat (By Robert Zellner)
During the summer of 1954, General Harrison started a competition between the wing squadrons based on performance, inspections and other criteria. The poorest squadron got a goat and had to keep him for a month. He was a big, handsome ram. One day soon after the losing squadron got the goat (I won't mention which squadron except to say it was not the A&E squadron) he appeard on the lawn outside the barracks, dead. The base vet performed a necroscopy and it turned out he was drowned. The poorest performing airman in the squadron was assigned to take care of the goat, and after a few days he stuffed the goat head first into a mop sink and killed him. I never heard what happened to the airman. but I don't imagine he was around much longer. This is absolutely a true story.
