A squadron of 40 Russian soldiers was blown up by a goat that had bumped into its grenade rim, with the kid injuring the invading squadron in Ukraine
Ukrainian troops have found an unlikely ally in the form of a heroic goat who wounded 40 Russian troops with a grenade trap.
The accidental hero child set off a series of tripwires planted by Russian military officials and accidentally injured the 40-man squadron with their own grenades.
Russian soldiers were apparently tricked by the goat after pinned grenades and tripwires blew up around a hospital in the Zaporizhia region.

Ukraine’s top intelligence directorate claims a total of 40 Russian invaders were injured in the attack after their tripwires backfired when they were kicked by the goat.
While the Chief Intelligence Directorate didn’t say whether the goat was a Ukrainian undercover spy, it said the goat moved into the area and “disposed of” several grenades, which set off a chain reaction.
This series of blasts wounded a squadron of Russian soldiers, with injuries of varying degrees reported.
While Russian troops were setting up booby traps and explosive devices around a hospital, a goat from a neighboring farm passed by and accidentally discarded the devices.
It is currently unknown whether or not the goat survived the blasts, Pravda reported.
But it’s not the first encounter with strange animals from the war in Ukraine, as veterans go to a bombed-out zoo to save a pride of hungry lions.
A group of ex-soldiers had gone to the zoo to save nine starving lions, the Latest Page News reported.
All nine lions, including two adult males, five females and one male and one female cub, were rescued from the enclosure and re-introduced to pasture.
The team behind the exfiltration aimed to release the wild animals in South Africa or in a wildlife sanctuary in the US.
