VIDEO: Goat head butts television reporter twice

Posted: Updated:
CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

WWSB reporter Linda Carson was the "butt" of some jokes after she was knocked over by a goat at a Florida fair.

Carson climbed into a pen full of goats for her story on livestock at the Manatee County Fair when of the animals decides he's had enough.

"The goats will be here through Saturday and they are very friendly," the Sarasota-based talent says as she signs off from the report.

In a moment perfectly timed for television, one of the goats head butts her, knocking her off her feet. She screams and falls to the ground.

"Are you okay dear?" someone off camera asks.

Carson gets up laughing, dusts herself off, and asks the photographer if he captured it on tape.

"Oh, I got it," he replies.

Soon after, the same goat goes in for a second charge.

According to WWSB, Carson says it didn't even hurt and she's thankful that "the sawdust and straw that she landed on was fresh and the animals had not soiled it yet."

The video has since gone viral, making television nationwide, including Jimmy Kimmel Live and Good Morning America.
