In Nashville, Tennessee, a man who authorities say deliberately ran over a 20-year-old goose at Sam’s Blue Turtle Marina in Old Hickory last month was arrested and charged in the animal’s death on Wednesday.
According to WkrnNews, Metro Animal Care & Control and Metro Police charged Nathan Haskins, 40, with felony aggravated animal cruelty with the death of Barnyard.
Authorities were alerted to Haskins through the Nashville Crime Stoppers. Haskins had allegedly been at a local bar and admitted he had been the driver who ran over Barnyard. Police confirmed video footage of a black Chrysler 300 sedan used to kill the goose as the same vehicle Haskins owns. The surveillance video from the morning of March 20 showed the driver stop in front of the goose, accelerate, run him over and then speed off.
Haskins has since confirmed that he ran over the goose. His bond was set at $3,000.
