A West Virginia man claims he was high on "bath salts" when he allegedly stabbed a neighbor's goat to death while wearing women's underwear.

Mark Thompson was charged with cruelty to animals after being arrested at his home on Monday, authorities said.

The pygmy goat, named Bailey, had been purchased as a gift for a 4-year-old boy when it somehow wound up in 19-year-old Thompson's home, The Charleston Gazette reported.

"They told him that my goat was wandering around in Mark's house and better come and get it," Lisa Powers, grandmother of the 4-year-old, told the West Virginia newspaper. "They called my nephew because he'd been there before."

When he, along with two other women, arrived at the house, they made their way to Thompson's bedroom.

"He told them, 'Don't come in, I'm naked,'" Powers told The Gazette. "But they opened the door and he was standing there with his pants down. He had on women's clothing and the goat was dead and there was blood everywhere."

Officers found the small gray-and-white goat wearing a pink collar lying dead on the floor, blood coming from its neck, according to a police report.

A pornographic magazine photo was found lying near the animal's carcass.

Thompson told police he had been using bath salts to get high for at least three days.

Bath salts, not be confused with the kind put in bathtubs, are a widely used designer drug that is not illegal, but achieves some of the same effects as LSD and ecstasy.


  1. Such a mind-boggling story. I wonder how a goat "somehow" winds up in somebody's house. Did it manage to turn the doorknob and let itself in? I also hope the 4-year-old boy wasn't yet aware of his gift-goat-to-be. I'd hate to try and explain to him what happened to the goat and why he wasn't going to have it as a pet after all.

  2. Strange. It's not in Florida.

  3. For some reason I was thinking he was standing over it in the lingerie dept of a tired for this stuff lmao

  4. Just another lingerie-wearing, high-on-bath-salts, pygmy goat killer story.

  5. Leaves me speachless. Toledo: hahaha

  6. Serial-killing sex offender in training.

  7. Also, they should really come up with a better name for that drug. "Bath salts' makes me think of junkies breaking into the bathrooms of old ladies.

  8. I agree with Tracie - they should come up with a better name -hahahaaaa breaking in the bathrooms of old ladies haaaaahaaa. The sick-O should be put away, what if that had been the 4 year old instead of the goat! From what I understand the goat went missing, then they received the phone call. I just wonder why the lady that made the call & was also living in the house didn't return the goat when it was brought there or make the call then. What Warped Sick-O's that could be anyone's neighbor.
