Goat gets stolen to receive a...manicure!

Oh boy, this is a strange one. Apparently a pair of suspects in San Diego were caught on tape stealing a goat from a local petting zoo. The goat, "Billy" was eventually returned but it had its hooves manicured in pink! Apparently the zoo employees tried to remove the polish but it is not coming off.
What were the motives of the culprits? Were they practicing their nail polishing techniques? Were they making a prank? Or were they under the impression that they were making the goat look better for all the kids to enjoy? (Or they were so drunk that none of the above applies).

No matter the motive, I find it hard to explain this using the rational agent hypothesis. If the couple were utility maximizers then I am really curious to know what led them to this act.

Enjoy the rest of your day!
