Checka is as good as a guard dog, his owner claims

A goat in Jamaica has become so notorious for attacking villagers that its owner wants to get rid of it but can’t find any takers.

The owner of Clarendon’s most feared goat is trying to part ways with the animal, which he said could take the place of any guard dog around the home.

Richard ‘Sashy Dread’ Joseph, who calls his goat Checka, wants to get rid because it is getting increasingly vicious.

“Right now mi can’t even take mi eye offa him,” he said. “The last couple a time mi take mi eye off him, and like him watch mi and realise, him buck mi straight dung a grung, so mi kinda a get fraid a him. Plus, him a take up a whole heap mi time because mi have to be watching him.”

Joseph said he has lost count of how many people Checka has attacked, stating that the ram goat drives more fear into some people in the tough community of Effortville.

“Checka buck down dozens of people until mi kinda lost count. Is a good thing mi live good with people or else him would a cost mi a lot of money for damages. Right now people fraid a da goat yah more than gunman in the community.”

He estimates that the cross between the Alpine and Boer breeds, weighs about 100lbs. He is prepared to run a raffle to get rid of it, adding that he has not been able to attract buyers because of Checka’s size. He is going to sell tickets for around KY$5.80 and would sell it for around $750.
