The Gavle Goat
December 24, 2010
submit to reddit

How do you steal a 43-foot tall straw goat that stands smack in the middle of a Swedish town square? Two men tried last week, and they weren't the first.

Sweden's iconic Galve goat has been vandalized so many times in its 44 years, it's now got its own live webcam and security guards watching over it.

In the latest attempt, the two men bribed the goat guards to look away while they tried to kidnap it by descending in a helicopter. Aaaaand....it didn't turn out so well.
