WHITE RIVER JUNCTION, Vt. -

A Vermont man is on trial accused of setting up a "hit" on a game warden's pet goats.

The knife attack happened in October 2011 at the home of Warden Steve Majeski. One goat died, another survived. The many who slit their throats, Daniel Parry, 22, of West Windsor, has already admitted to the crime. But he says he did it at the urging of Nicholas Ashline, 35, of Hartland, and that Ashline later paid him $100.

Ashline is facing several felony accounts. He says Parry was drunk and on drugs and took what was meant to be a joke literally.
