Animal control authorities are investigating the discovery of a live goat found in the trunk of a woman's car when she stopped for repairs.
She went to Tires Plus in Winona Friday, wanting a belt replaced on her Chevy Malibu. While repairman James Prusci was doing paperwork, she said she had a goat in her trunk.
"A what?" he asked. The woman, who was on her way to St. Paul, told him she planned to butcher it.
It was painted Minnesota Viking colors - purple and gold - with Brett Favre's No. 4 shaved on its side. Favre made his Vikings debut Friday in a preseason game.
Prusci called animal control, which took the goat to a local vet. He was renamed "Brett" and placed in foster care.
Animal control officer Wendy Peterson said Monday the city attorney is reviewing the case for possible citations.
