    Iris Robles says the victim is her cousin, a mother of four with a young son.

    Animal control responded to the scene and removed the dead goat from the woman's vehicle but Robles says her cousin and family are left with questions, like who would do this?

    "She has no idea whatsoever, and she has no enemies," Robles said.

    Why would someone want to terrify this mother of four?

    Robles said, "They are insane, this is insane. They are so disturbing."
