In Lawenceville, Georgia, a man who worked on a ranch located near New Hope Road allegedly forced a goat to inhale cocaine and drink whiskey. Authorities were notified after video footage of three men subjecting the animal to the abuse was turned over to the Gwinnett County Sheriff’s Office.
On Friday, sheriff investigators arrested Sergio Palomares-Guzman, 28, at the farm where he worked as a horse trainer. According to the Gwinnett County Sheriff’s Office Facebook posting, the video from January 2, shows Palomares-Guzman holding the goat by his horns and another man inserting cocaine into the goat’s nostril. Palomares-Guzman then forced the goat’s mouth open while the second male suspect poured whiskey into the goat’s mouth.
After Palomares-Guzman shared the video, a tipster notified authorities of the animal abuse. The suspect faces charges of aggravated cruelty to animals and has been transported to the Gwinnett County Jail where deputies assigned to the case have since placed the suspect on ICE detainer.
The other two suspects still remain unidentified, although it is believed they live in North Carolina. The ranch owner had no knowledge of the incident believed to have taken place on January 2, 2018.
The goat remains at the Gwinnett Animal Shelter, where he received a veterinary exam and was given a clean bill of health. Palomares-Guzman waived ownership of the animal, and the goat is now available for adoption. Anyone interested in adopting the goat can contact the Gwinnett Animal Shelter at 770-339-3200.
