SMITHFIELD, Utah — A 14-year-old Utah boy delivering newspapers was chased up a tree by a black goat named Voldemort and kept there for more than an hour as the goat chased away anyone approaching the tree.

What’s worse, Voldemort is a 1 ½-year-old fainting goat, which falls over as if dead when scared.  But Voldemort was busy putting fear into news carrier Jaxon Gessel instead.

    Perhaps Voldermort was just not in the mood to read the morning news that day and instead all he wanted was for the paperboy for once to acknowledge him and just once try to get to know him. After all one can only imagine how difficult it is being a lonely goat with the misfortune of having to be named Voldermort. Yes even goats have feelings.

    Well you can't blame him to be honest?
    He's had enough of dealing with pesky kids.
