A situation goat out of hand when Chompers, mascot of the Hartford Yard Goats Baseball Team, was tackled to the ground on Wednesday. Why would anyone feel the need to assault an adorable and huggable green goat is beyond me.
So, here’s what went down (besides the goat.) Chompers was chilling out by Asylum Avenue on Wednesday when a man charged and knocked him to the ground.
Thankfully, Chompers has social media where he was able to alert his fans about the unprovoked incident.
I was charged tonight and did get knocked down, but I’m going to be fine. Thank you for your support & well wishes. #CantKeepAGoodGoatDown

Police are trying to catch the suspect and figure out if this was, indeed, an attack or just a joke that went too far.
It’s a serious day in Hartford.
