MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - A 24-year-old man has been charged with felony animal mistreatment, after he allegedly killed his goat in front of his co-workers outside a plant in Sun Prairie.

Phillip Pardee, whose address is listed as Niagara in far northeast Wisconsin, is free on a signature bond. The status of his case is scheduled to be reviewed at a July 21st conference in Dane County Circuit Court.

Media reports said Pardee did not have a place to keep the goat while he was working at the Madison-Kipp Sun Prairie plant -- and the animal escaped from a crate inside the building.

He reportedly struck the animal's head against a curb, after his bosses told him he could not keep the goat inside the factory.
