In difficult financial times, poor people often take chances.
Probably not an Over-goat.

Apparently the farmer had no rifle.

I can't help but to wonder what he thought might happen if actually got the goat away from it. I'm thinking it would not have walked away head down and defeated.
It may not have been the smartest move but it darn sure was a ballsy one.
