Similarly, a Florida woman, Kris Hedstrom, filed a civil suit against a neighbour demanding a paternity test for the five goats she purchased in December.
The lawsuit filed by Hedstrom as reported by UPI, demanded that her neighbour, Heather Dayner, either refund the $900 she paid for the five Nigerians dwarf goats she purchased in December or provide a sample of DNA from the goats’ purported father to prove their lineage.
Her lawsuit alleged that she was under the impression that she would be able to register the goats’ pedigrees with the American Dairy Goat Association.
Hedstorm said, “Dayner, owner of Baxter Lane Farm in Odessa, told me the father of the goats, Country Caprese Ace, was registered with the organisation, but the group rejected my attempt to register the babies because Dayner is not an active member.”
She stated that the association told her she would need to submit 40 hair follicles from the father goat to prove the lineage of the babies, so she sent Dayner a letter requesting the DNA sample.
Dayner responded by offering to take the goats back and give Hedstrom a refund.
Dayner said Hedstrom repeatedly trespassed on her property and called the police on her.
She said, “Hedstrom sent me a message in March telling me not to contact her again, and that was the last I heard until the lawsuit was filed this month.”
Dayner said she was due in court next month and planned to represent herself because she didn’t want to spend money on a lawyer.
CANDIIDONLINE reports that a 42-year-old woman has reportedly been arrested by the police in Naivasha, Kenya for reportedly killing her 4 children (three girls and one boy) who are between the ages of 2 and 8 years.

Upon entering the two-bedroom house, the police found the bodies of the four children in their beds with traces of vomit and blood in their mouth.
Naivasha Sub County Police Commander Samuel Waweru confirmed the incident, adding that the suspect is in lawful police custody.

A police officer involved in the investigations added that “She (the suspect) took turns to strangle the four and slept in the same house until today (Saturday) morning when she walked away from the house.
“We are at the very initial stages of the probe and at this point, we cannot divulge much details.”
