In a bizarre theft incident worthy to be called “GOAT theft auto”, a man in Maharashtra’s Igatpuri was caught on video, jumping on a truck, stealing goat, and throwing the poor animal on the road. The video showed the accused man fleeing in a luxury car. Initially, reports claimed that the incident took place in Pakistan. However, as hours have passed, new updates have alleged that the incident comes from Igatpuri.
In a heart-wrenching incident that has sparked outrage across social media, a video has surfaced of several innocent goats being unceremoniously thrown off a truck onto a busy road in Maharashtra. This ghastly act was captured on tape by a passing traveller, and the footage has now gone viral.
The footage, which has been erroneously claimed to be from the Kanpur-Unnao Highway in Uttar Pradesh, was in fact from Igatpuri, Maharashtra. The video shows a man cruelly tossing the helpless goats onto the road at night, with no regard for their safety or well-being.
After dropping less than a handful of goats onto the road, the perpetrator was seen stepping down from the vehicle’s carrier, ostensibly to return to the car parked next to the truck.
This act of animal cruelty has left animal lovers and concerned citizens in shock and disgust.
The Facts of the Matter
While heists of all kinds are entertaining to watch all thanks to CCTV footage, some heists are heart-wrenching to say the least. Heists where animals are smuggled for nefarious purposes not only shed light on the increasing spate of such incidents, but also evoke horrors in the hearts and minds of animal lovers.
GOAT Heist Video Outrages Netizens
In a viral video that’s been circulating on social media like wildfire, a despicable act of animal cruelty has come to light. The video shows several helpless goats being flung off a moving truck onto a busy road in Maharashtra.
The twisted took a bizarre twist because when the undated video of the incident went viral, it was mistakenly believed to be from the Kanpur-Unnao Highway in Uttar Pradesh.

What Does Video Show
The footage shows a man recklessly tossing the innocent goats onto the road, with no regard for their safety or well-being. And if that wasn’t enough to make one feel outraged, there’s more.
Reports suggest that the individual who threw the goats off the truck was attempting to steal them from the vehicle. This guy had the nerve to put the lives of innocent animals at risk just so he could score some goats for himself.
Despite the obvious danger of the goats being injured or causing accidents on the busy road, the perpetrator didn’t seem to care one bit. He tossed the poor animals onto the road like they were mere toys, and then nonchalantly got down from the truck, seemingly to make his escape in a car parked next to the truck.

Now, as much as we’d like to end this story on a positive note, we must report that justice has yet to be served. The culprit is still at large, and the fate of the goats remains unknown.
