PALMETTO, Fla. - A year ago, as she was on camera doing a story about 4H Club livestock exhibits at the Manatee County Fair, Linda Carson stepped into the goats' pen and was sent flying by Son, the goat.

The video went viral, hitting major news and talk shows all across the globe.

Tuesday, Linda went back into the goat pen for a rematch.

"I forgive you, Son," Linda told the goat.  Last we heard, both goat and Linda were still standing.
