Sarasota TV reporter makes national news getting head-butted by a goat on air
Linda Carson, a longtime reporter at WWSB-TV, the ABC affiliate in Sarasota, made national news the hard way after getting head butted to the ground by a goat on live television.
The incident happened during a report from the Manatee County Fair, as Carson was finishing a live shot. While bending down to speak with the goat, Carson got a good shot from the animal, which brought a quick scream before she landed on her behind.
Carson has been a good sport about it all, joking with an anchor on Good Morning America Sunday while WWSB's website has featured bits centered on the clip aired on Jimmy Kimmel Live and CNN anchor Anderson Cooper's The Ridiculist.
I was in Ft. Lauderdale Friday morning, and the CBS affiliate aired that story at least three times, making me wonder when the news got so sleepy in South Florida that an on air goat mishap in Sarasota could take up so much time.
Anyway, if you missed it, here it is below:
