Goat Thrower

High on a hill was a lonely goatherd... with a trebuchet

Driving through a mountain pass in a rainforest, with lowering clouds trailing tendrils of mist amongst the darkly mossed trunks, we peered intently into the gloom.

This was where it was supposed to have happened... where the "incidents" were most commonly reported as occurring.

Without warning, there was a massive noise and the dismembered carcass of a goat (perhaps) appeared on the windscreen of our bus. A piercing, roaring scream shattered the stunned silence as the bus driver accelerated violently, taking the next curve at high speed and on two wheels.

Passengers stared carefully at the passing forest, hoping to catch a glimpse / not see what was "chasing" us.

Later, the driver doubled back and slipped Cletus [the leopard] $50 and another dismembered goat.

Here, goatsy, goatsy...

       Why not throw the same carcass over and over again? Especially after, say, it is processed by a taxidermist? Also, if you start with one ordinary accidental roadkill, there is no reason to kill a goat for this purpose.

       True enough. It would soon become rather disgusting and smelly, though that wouldn't be something the average nature tourist would notice, initially.

       Bun for giving me $50. These be hard times...

       Well, I figured you'd already developed a prototype goat thrower for your Jurassic Faaark! device. I just put it to a slightly different use.

       Can only give a bun if, while the trebuchet is being pulled back into launch position, two hands open a goat launching aperture.

       I almost named this "Goat Tosser" then thought better of it.

       You haven't the bottle for it, [4].
