In Sweden, once again burned the figure of the New Year's goat

The Swedish town of Gavle once again burned the figure of a popular local fairy-tale character - Yevlsky goat.

The figure is traditionally installed in the city center for Christmas holidays from 1966 and each time local residents try to set it on fire, despite the illegality of this action. For almost half a century of this tradition, the goat managed to survive only 13 times, the last of which occurred in 2014.

This time the goat was not rescued from the goat fire even by a special fence and video surveillance system, although one of the suspects in arson, a man born in 1990 in a balaclava and with a cigarette lighter, was nevertheless detained.

At the moment, the police are also looking for a second suspect. What measures will be applied to them, has not yet been reported.
