Boeing and dead goats

Here’s an odd story from Reuters. I’m assuming it’s not a hoax, though you never know.

Officials at the state-run airline of Nepal apparently have been experiencing problems with one of their Boeing 757s. Their solution: Sacrifice a couple of goats to the Hindu sky god Akash Bhairab.

The sacrifice must have worked, or (my guess) a mechanic figured out what the problem was. Either way, it did not end well for the goats.
