SMITHFIELD, Utah -- A 14-year-old Utah boy delivering newspapers was chased up a tree by a black goat named Voldemort and kept there for more than an hour as the goat chased away anyone approaching the tree.

What’s worse, Voldemort is a 1 ½-year-old fainting goat, which falls over as if dead when scared.  But Voldemort was busy putting fear into news carrier Jaxon Gessel instead.
