Woman ticketed after goats caught mating

Carol Medenhall of Dibble, OK received two tickets: one for allowing her goats to be seen mating in her yard, and another for allowing her goats to be seen relieving themselves in her yard.
Picture 9-18 City law said it is illegal for any two animals to have sex in public within Dibble city limits.

It's also against law for them to relieve themselves in public even if the animal is fenced in on private land.

  1. wow thats backwards.

    I am slightly, and only slightly, more appalled by the Alleged Celebrity Atheist slide show linked at the bottom of the page.

  2. It’s also against law for them to relieve themselves in public

    What the hell are you supposed to do when you walk your dog? Carry a collapsable privacy screen?

    I can’t believe this kind of idiocy goes on in Oklahoma of all places…

  3. ” . . . it is illegal for any two animals to have sex in public , . . ”

    So a three-way would have been OK?

  5. Love the spunky comment by the goats’ owner. Having driven through rural Oklahoma a few times, I’m surprised that the people there don’t have a more laid back take on things like this. It was like Amsterdam’s red light district for cows, at least the parts I drove through.

  6. “I am slightly, and only slightly, more appalled by the Alleged Celebrity Atheist slide show linked at the bottom of the page.”

    What is the definition of “Atheist”?

    I’m not trying to be clever, I’m genuinely curious how that list was compiled.

    And I will go so far as to say that I am MORE appalled that a list of “alleged atheists” is newsworthy.

  7. It’s refreshing to see this kind of thought in Oklahoma:

    “I kind of thought if anyone was caught having sex in public, it could have been me,”

    It kills me that she had to fight this on a technicality.

  8. I want to know why police are wasting their time on this crap, pulling over people to give them a coffee and not doing things like, i don’t know arresting criminals. Are police just bored from lack of crime? I suppose I can’t complain if that’s the case.

  9. I happen to live in Oklahoma and Dibble is the only town according to the original story that has a silly ordinance like that. Sometimes in Oklahoma they neglect to take old laws of the law books. Then all it takes is to piss off a neighbor and have them know the ordinance exists to get a ticket like that.

  10. I heard about this at work a few days ago(I’m from Oklahoma). The neighbors had apparently been bickering over it for some time. The neighbor found an old law that was created as the city was expanding. Kind of a ‘Please keep your cattle out of Main St.’ The lady lives out in the middle of nowhere, but a more recent law puts her just within city limits. Hence the ticket. Kind of a jerk thing to do, in my opinion…not that I approve of goat procreation in my front yard either.

  11. Maybe a law should be passed making it ‘illegal’ for someone to look up an old ‘unenforced’ law or by-law for the express purpose of ‘gettin a neighbour’. I believe there is already a good term used for what this person did…Harassment.

  12. Odd, I thought that Oklahoma was still recovering from a natural disaster. Nice to know that they can go back to fussing over silly shit like this again. Maybe they can pass a law forbidding towns from having silly names like “Dibble”.

  13. HA HA HA HA HA !!! Oh, that’s rich!

    I can imagine the police trying to arrest a couple of squirrels mating on the town green. Or the pigeons that relieve themselves regularly everywhere in public.

    I guess nobody is allowed to walk their dog “in public”?

    The neighbors had apparently been bickering over it for some time.

    Ah, it’s the ever-growing problem of the well-off moving to the countryside and complaining that the farmers stink.

  15. Okay. I have to say that not *All* of us Oklahomans are as backwards as we appear.
    Second, I believe there is a daycare in the Dibble High School, but no sex education courses.
    Also, I think it’s still legal for humans to relieve themselves in public, only after having had sex on the lawn…
