Woman dies in Abrantes following attack by goat

An elderly woman has died in Abrantes after being attacked by a goat. According to local reports, the woman was 80-years-old; according to tabloid Correio da Manhã, she was 69. Both sources agree however that she was walking along the side of the road, near Pego, when the goat – for reasons unclear – attacked her. The woman was admitted to hospital as a “seriously injured person”, and sadly died of her injuries. The owner of the goat “will have to respond to what happened in a criminal process”, says mediotejo online.
