Bestiality is heavily implied, specifically those 'inappropriate charms'. But even as a young young he had an unhealthy obsession for goats. From Dumbledore's note in story of Beedle the Bard

I heard it first from mine mother, and also it soon became the story I requested an ext often than any kind of other at bedtime. This generally led to disagreements with my younger brother, Aberforth, who favourite story to be “Grumble the Grubby Goat”.

You are watching: What did aberforth do to goats

Edit: This is not the just instance.

“He to be a head case, that Aberforth,” stated Enid Smeek, whose household lived ~ above the suburbs of Godric’s hole at that time. “Ran wild. ‘Course, through his mum and dad unable to do you’d have actually felt sorry for him, only he maintained chucking goat dung in ~ my head.

Seems he to be a genuine nut case

I constantly hated that so many civilization make it a sex-related bestiality type of reference. Ns think the the implicitly is that Aberforth is really just an odd male with a strong love the goats and the wizarding world makes funny of him because that it. I mean...my best friend's mother was a goat breeder so she to be pretty obsessed...but us didn't think the was due to the fact that she was having SEX with them! Couldn't the "inappropriate charms" it is in any variety of different things?

As Rowling said, it is a hoax that works on plenty of levels. Many personalities have pets and they all have to be making use of a range of charms on them. However only Aberforth's charms were inappropriate.

There's a tendency for the fandom to sexualize EVERYTHING. Two personalities are close friends? must be fucking. Woman character it s okay beaten up? Must've to be rape. Inappropriate charms top top goats? practically certainly bestiality.

To it is in fair words innappropriate usually refers to sexual conduct and "inappropriate charm on a goat" is really suspicious.

Even I discover the propensity to sexualise every little thing irritating. Yet here, sexuality is heavily implied.

Q: In the Goblet that Fire Dumbledore claimed his brother was prosecuted for practicing unreasonable charms ~ above a goat; what to be the unreasonable charms he was practicing on that goat?

JKR: exactly how old room you?

Eight.

JKR: ns think the he was trying to make a goat the was straightforward to save clean , curly horns. It is a joke that functions on a pair of levels. Ns really favor Aberforth and his goats. However you know Aberforth having actually this strange fondness for goats if you’ve read publication seven, came in really helpful to Harry, later on on, due to the fact that a goat, a stag, you know. If she a stupid death Eater, those the difference. So, the is mine answer come YOU.

Wizards utilizing charms on animals is as common as muggles clean or feeding them in the normal manner. Why were the charms he offered inappropriate? I do not recognize why his character had actually to be favor this. Can't he be a an extremely normal person who happens to favor goats, just like Hermione likes Crookshanks? also Voldemort was a bit more 'decent' as soon as it involved Nagini.
