Shock and disbelief have followed a reported transaction in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, where a businessman sold a goat to someone interested in herding for 13 million Riyals, or roughly $3.6 million.
Some Saudis took to social media to express their disbelief in the price tag, wondering why anyone would shell out millions on the animal. Others poked fun at the transaction.
A goat was recently sold in Saudi Arabia for USD3.5 Million, now if thats not money laundering I can’t figure what is.
