Police find goats in diapers in Jose Canseco’s car

GOATS IN A CAR: Former major league baseball player Jose Canseco points to a t-shirt that apologizes to Mark McGwire for outing him as a performance enhancing drug user during the Los Angeles Dodgers' baseball game against the St. Louis Cardinals, Thursday, Sept. 13, 2012, in Los Angeles.

You just can’t make this stuff up.

The former baseball star tweeted a picture Wednesday with the bizarre explanation that he was traveling with two goats, at least one of them wearing a diaper.

Canseco documented the “fainting goat adventures” he and girlfriend, model Leila Knight, were having on his twitter page. Knight also took to twitter to share news of the goats, which the couple apparently named Coco and Chanel.

Canseco and Knight had collected the beasts from a sanctuary to re-home them at their property. Late Thursday, Canseco again used twitter to explain the photograph, saying he and Knight had put diapers on the goats to prevent them from using the bathroom inside their car.
