A woman accused of mistreating a baby goat outside of a Vacaville bar last month failed to show up for a court appearance on Tuesday, although a Solano County Superior Court judge has given her until Friday to show up before issuing an arrest warrant.
Facing a felony animal abuse charge, Lillian Wohn, 23, was scheduled to appear before Judge Robert Bowers for the scheduling of a probable cause hearing. Her absence led Bowers to revoke her bail status and order to her to appear at 8:30 a.m. on Friday.
Wohn is accused of a May 11 incident in which witnesses reported to police that she was spotted mistreating the animal. Wohn reportedly ran away after a concerned citizen was able to take it away from her.
According to Vacaville police, witnesses saw Wohn dropping, kicking and throwing the baby goat to the ground. In addition, Wohn was seen grabbing the baby goat by its front legs and twirling it around before pouring beer into its mouth.
The baby goat was believed to have been born within 48 hours of the alleged abuse and was taken into the care of Humane Animal Services.
Police caught up to her and took her into custody in the 500 block of Elmira Road.
According to prosecutors, Wohn has a misdemeanor case pending in Solano County Superior Court regarding an alleged commercial burglary from the Burlington Coat Factory in Vacaville earlier this year.
She has pleaded not guilty.
