Gov.Kristi Noem shoots puppy “less than worthless” and pet goat ''smells disgusting''

S. Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem (R), who is being eyed as a potential running mate to Donald Trump, admitted to shooting and killing a puppy she called “less than worthless” — along with her “disgusting” goat — in her new book.

According to The Guardian, Noem’s unreleased book, No Going Back: The Truth on What’s Wrong with Politics and How We Move America Forward, details how her effort to train her aggressive female dog for hunting pheasant was unsuccessful.

The Republican leader said she can do anything “difficult, messy and ugly” if necessary. Noem explained how she had hoped the puppy named Cricket would prove to be an efficient hunter at a local pheasant hunt but things quickly got out of control.

“I hated that dog,” Noem writes, adding that Cricket had proved herself “untrainable”, and “less than worthless … as a hunting dog”.

“At that moment,” Noem says, “I realised I had to put her down.”

Noem, who also represented her state in Congress for eight years, got her gun, then led Cricket to a gravel pit.

“It was not a pleasant job,” she writes, “but it had to be done.”

The governor also wrote about how she killed a “nasty and mean” male goat because it had not been castrated.

She describes the goat as smelling “disgusting, musky, rancid”.
