Anthony Ujah scored Cologne’s fourth goal in a 4–2 win against Eintracht Frankfurt and he decided to celebrate with Cologne’s live goat mascot, Hennes. But instead of doing something nice like petting the goat or giving it a high five, Ujah went right for the horns and tried to pull Hennes back onto its hind legs.
This became a problem when Hennes’ handler refused to let go of his collar, creating a bizarre goat tug-of-war situation that was uncomfortable for everyone.
Mascot abuse is real. And it must end.
