Goodbye Cricket, Hello Kristi Noem’s Goat

South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem’s decision to kill her wire-haired pointer Cricket has sparked outrage, but another victim of her cruelty, a male goat, has been overlooked. The goat was shot at the same gravel pit and suffered a terrifying death due to its behavior of being aggressive during breeding season. Noem’s method of killing the goat was deemed inhumane by experts, who suggest using a small-caliber rifle for a quick and painless death. Noem’s history of animal killings may have political implications, as she is seen as a potential running mate for Donald Trump. The lack of attention given to the goat’s death compared to the dog’s shows a disconnect in how people perceive animals.
