No, I'm not talking about Frank the LJ mascot. ;P

The giant 13 metre tall Christmas goat (Gävlebocken) in the main square of Gävle, on the east coast of Sweden went up in flames early Friday morning after an attack by unknown assailants.

The poor thing didn't last a week this year. :)

The giant straw goat, which has been erected in the town's main square every year since 1966, undergoes a battle against the elements and local arsonists every year, which splits loyalties in the town.

Half of the inhabitants take pride in the giant animal, while the other half take equal pride in attempting to burn it down.


I wonder if they'll raise another one since this one didn't last to Lucia (December 13th)?
