On one hand, this woman’s facing some serious criminal charges.  But on the other hand, I bet she got at least 15 likes on Instagram.  So totally worth it.

There’s a 34-year-old woman named Erica Farmer in Gulf Shores, Alabama.  And she recently stole her neighbor’s GOAT . . . PAINTED it . . . and then took a bunch of photos for social media.

The goat’s owner figured out what happened and called the cops.  They found the goat at Erica’s house.

(Here’s her mugshot . . . plus a few photos of the painted goat.)

And now she’s looking at a FELONY charge for livestock theft.  She’s also looking at an animal cruelty charge.
