Does this goat look gassy? If so, maybe you don"t want it on your
plane.
(Photo: iStock)Well, this is one for the record books: flatulent goats
forced a cargo plane to make an emergency landing this week.
A"Singapore
Airlines Boeing 747-400 freighter plane traveling from Sydney to Kuala Lumpur
had 2,186 sheep on board, and the combined stench of their "exhaust fumes" and
manure set off the smoke alarm.The crew, thinking the alarm was due to, you
know, fire, quickly diverted to Bali and made an emergency landing.
Of course,
when emergency services boarded, they didn"t find any fire or smoke —
but they did find the natural emissions of 2,000 sheep.
Two and a half hours
later, the herd and the crew were on their way again."Related:"Airplane Noises
That Should (and Shouldn"t) Freak You OutThis isn"t the first time animals
have wreaked their own special brand of havoc on a Singapore Airlines
plane.
In August, another aircraft was carrying a flock of storks from
Istanbul to Singapore, and soon after takeoff, the birds pecked a hole in the
nose of the plane.Related: What Really Causes Plane Crashes? (It"s Not What
You Think)
In the case of the goats, the hoofers didn"t cause any
damage.
Apparently though, bloat and flatulence are common occurrences when
animals like cattle, sheep, and goats are under stress.
Now we"ve heard
everything.
Thank goodness we didn"t have to smell it.WATCH:"Behind the
