Skateboarding Goat Sets Guinness Book Of World Record in Fort Myers

FORT MYERS, Fla. (CBS Tampa) – If you want a pet that is loyal and can do cool tricks, you can always get a goat.

That is exactly what 18-year-old Melody Cooke got. Her pet goat Happie just set the Guinness Book of World Record for the furthest distance skateboarding by a goat.

“She figured out how to get on and then I was just like, ‘Whoa, this is amazing,’” Cooke told KSEE-TV.

According to First Coast News, Cooke and her parents sent the video to Guinness and a few months later the goat was a world-record holder.

The video shows the skateboarding lasting for 25 seconds until Happie hit a parking barrier.

“She could have gone even further but she ran into the parking barrier,” David Cooke told First Coast News.

Before heading off to the Wharton School of Business at the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia, Cooke plans to make more videos with Happie.

“I plan on making more fun and creative videos and see how far we can go with this,” she told KSEE.
