Ibex attack ruins girl’s birthday

`A birthday party went horribly wrong yesterday when a goat at the Winnipeg Zoo was killed by its herd in front of the birthday girl.

Terry Geiger and her boyfriend had taken Geiger’s daughter, Angie, and a friend to the zoo for the six-year-old’s birthday when two Alpine ibex goats started fighting in the enclosure in front of them.

“At first it was entertaining,” Geiger said. “It was like watching the Discovery Channel but it just got worse and worse.”‘
