A woman in Florida has gone to court over the paternity of five goats she bought from her neighbour because she was of the strong belief that they were fathered by a pedigreed animal.
In December 2019, Kris Hedstrom paid her neighbour, Heather Dayner, the sum of $900 (N349,200) for five Nigerian dwarf goats which were named Margoat, Rosie, Gigi, Bella, and Zelda, Daily Mail reports.
It should be noted that Dayner operates Baxter Lane Farm and has been in the business of selling baby goats for the past 10 years.
The breeder of the goat reportedly told Hedstrom that the father of the kids was registered with the American Dairy Goat Association.
With that, Hedstrom had hoped that she would also be able to register her goats, which will make them more valuable in the market.
However, on getting to the organisation, they turned her back, saying the breeder never registered with them.
When Hedstrom wrote Dayner about the situation, the latter offered to return her money and get the goat back.
The response did not satisfy Hedstrom as she now wants a DNA test of the father or her money with lawyer’s fees and court costs.
Meanwhile, YEN.com.gh also reported that Ezekiel Nana Ansah, a popular American footballer who originates from Ghana, has been made a 'king' with the name Abrahene (King of Giants) at Akropong-Akwapim in the Eastern Region.
Ameyawdebrah.com indicates that Okuapehene Oseadeeyo Kwasi Akuffo and his elders conferred the title on Ezekiel Nana Ansah, who is popularly known as Ziggy.
This was in appreciation to Ziggy for his numerous achievements and philanthropic works after the star visited the Okuapehene to pay respect and to congratulate him for ascending the throne.
