Burning goat tattoos arouse police suspicion

Burning goat tattoos arouse police suspicion

After the iconic Gävle Christmas goat was torched by unidentified vandals last week, a photo appeared online of four ankles bearing burning goat tattoos. Police are now hot on the case.

The 13-metre Christmas goat in Gävle, eastern Sweden, was torched late on Wednesday night last week. On Thursday, an anonymous confession popped up on the controversial Swedish internet forum Flashback.

By Saturday, a picture of four legs also appeared on the site, each with a cartoon tattoo of the flaming goat together with the time and date that the straw creature was set alight.

“This kind of tattoo isn’t done by just anyone,” said Mikael Hedström of the Gävle police to the Expressen newspaper.

“But even if we find out who it is, it’s no proof.”
