Pastor dies in unusual farm accident

A pastor in Montgomery County was killed in an accident on his land after he became tangled in a rope hitched to an aggressive goat.

The Rev. Liston G. Richardson was found by his wife Tuesday afternoon on the ground, with the goat rearing up and down on top of him. Police said a rope tied to the goat was wrapped around Richardson's neck.

When Lucille Richardson attempted to remove the rope, the goat charged at her and later at responding paramedics. One of the rescuers had to hold the goat by the horns to free the victim.

Family members say Richardson, the 76-year-old pastor of Sunnyview Independent Missionary Baptist Church, had heart problems that could have contributed to his death.
