Goat Manure Gets Results


There’s nothing like a little goat manure to get the attention of politicians, I always say.

After waiting for a month for a pasture in which to graze his 500 goats, a shepherd in an unnamed “southern Italian city” brought his protest to the prefect’s office’s front door. The square in front of the prefect’s office was “soon covered in excrements,” naturally, and the city’s cleaners were kept busy cleaning up after the goats… But the protest worked, as a town official was assigned to “personally handle the shepherd’s case.”
