Yep. Woke up at 6am to a neighbor frantically ringing our doorbell saying that a car crashed through the cinderblock wall on the side of our property. I went running out back in my PJs to find the car sitting INSIDE my goat pen amidst a pile of rubble and rebar. Oh crap. The goats were hiding in their house on the other side of the pen, thank god, looking visibly shaken up but otherwise uninjured. No one was in the car so I climbed over it and saw a lady and man sitting on the side of the road and asked if they were okay. Neither spoke a word of English so I called the police and once they showed up they told me that the lady had no license, registration for the car, or insurance. Double oh crap. Tow truck came and pulled the car out and we began quickly trying to stack up the crumbled cinder blocks so the goats didn't run out of the 8 foot hole. Everyone appears fine but the wall is going to be $3000 to fix, and that's on US. The cop told us in a very heavy Spanish accent that the lady was only getting a citation, and she got to leave shortly after. I am beyond upset. My boyfriend was taken to jail for the night a few months back for driving with a suspended license and no registration, and he didn't even hit anything! How could they let this woman go after she crashed through our wall and could very well have killed my poor goats? Isn't that reckless endangerment at least? If she had crashed through a daycare playground or our bedroom I'm sure there would've been more sever repercussions, but nothing for a goat pen. And we just brought home our bred doe, so I'm freaking out that the stress could cause her to abort. Ugh, what a pain. Any suggestions on what to do?
