The NRA has entered the Scottish ‘goat hunting’ furore by giving its support to some mindless bimbo who shot a defenseless Scottish Wild Goat dead, then posted pictures of herself with its lifeless body on Twitter in the name of some warped idea that what she had done could be called sport.

Speaking to reporters a spokesman said: ‘I travel to Scotland often and I’ll never forget once when trekking on Islay I saw a similar goat watching me from atop a distant hill. That was one bad mother of a goat, a real nasty piece of work. I knew right away that given half a chance it would have attacked me and I had to shoot it.’

‘So in this case I’m not surprised that this real hot babe… I mean this poor terrified woman… shot it. She was all alone on a remote island and if you ask me it was either her or the goat.’

Meanwhile a rank and file NRA member, some terrifyingly toothless redneck hick from Arkansas called Zeke, Zach or Zeb and who loves guns saying ‘they’re just great’ commented: ‘The only thing that stops a timid and defenseless goat is a good guy with high powered rifle, or maybe they could use a club studded with nine-inch nails. Yeehaw!’
