Oddest festival I have ever heard - "Goat Throwing"

This festival took place in Spain for couple hundred years. So basically what people do is they throw a live goat from the top of a church, and some other people at the bottom try to catch it with a tent. Some survive and some not. But this is the festival's opener, so they go party anyway. Animal rights banned this festival in 2002.

I wonder how someone hundred years ago came up with this great idea - why don't we throw a goat from the top of the church, this sounds kind of fun?
