      Husband Killed in Fight About Goats?
      Fri Jun 13!

      OKLAHOMA CITY (Reuters) - An Eldon, Oklahoma, woman has been charged
      with shooting her husband dead after an argument over who should feed
      the couple's goats, police said on Thursday.

      Authorities charged Pearl Lynne Smith, 47, with first-degree murder
      for the death of her husband, Thomas Smith, 51. Sheriff's deputies
      responded to a domestic disturbance call at the couple's rural
      eastern Oklahoma home on Tuesday and found the husband dead, shot
      once through the chest.

      "We were told that what prompted this disagreement was her failure to
      feed the goats," Cherokee County Undersheriff Dan Garber said.

      Garber said the wife pointed a 9 mm pistol at her husband and
      demanded that he go feed the goats. Thomas Smith then dared his wife
      to shoot him, Garber said. When he took a step toward Pearl, she
      killed him with a single shot, Garber added.

      The two had a history of domestic trouble, Garber said, and the
      argument over feeding the goats was the breaking point.

      "Something like that is the trigger that unlocks something deeper,"
      Garber said.

      Pearl Smith is in jail on $100,000 bail, pending her arraignment on
      Friday, court officials said. She could face the death penalty if
      convicted.

      there is more to this story than meet the eye, thats for sure.
      only an idjit would make a threatening move to a well-armed goat mama.
      i guess this qualifies as a Darwin Award suicide then.
