A ‘hungry’ goat gave a rude shock to its owner when it chewed up currency notes worth Rs 66,000 that the man had kept in the pocket of his trouser, at Siluapur village in Kannauj district of Uttar Pradesh on Monday.
The currency was in the denomination of Rs 2,000 notes, which farmer Sarvesh Kumar Pal had kept to purchase bricks for construction work that is underway in his house. When he saw the goat munching the notes, Pal raised an alarm and could manage to save only two Rs 2,000 notes, that too in a damaged condition. There was no trace of the remaining 31 notes.
“I was taking a bath and the money was kept in the pocket of my trousers. Notorious for eating all kinds of paper products, the goat seized the chance to munch on its favourite food. What to do, my goat is like a child to me,” Sarvesh said with a broad smile. “Later, two notes wet in saliva could be retrieved in a damaged condition,” he added.
