Get out of here, goats!
Over the past year, the pandemic has had a huge impact on the lives of people around the world, often in unexpected ways. For example, a town in North Wales has been taken over by a large herd of goats.
Normally, Kashmiri goats near the town of Llandudno were injected with contraceptives to reduce their numbers, reports the Southwest News Service (SWNS). Unfortunately, due to the pandemic and the lockdowns that resulted from it, these injections were not given this year.

The result is that the larger than normal herd would have traveled around the city in search of food.
According to SWNS, local councilor Louise Emery said: “There seems to be a herd of rogue goats that have wandered through town in a completely new area that they’ve never been to… that’s a concern.

She continued, “It’s a big concern at night, actually, as they tend to wander more at night and the roads are very quiet. Drivers can literally turn a corner and be faced with eight or nine goats on the road. road.”
Sally Pidcock, who works as a guard in a nearby park, reportedly explained: “The majority of the goats that pass through Llandudno and leave quite a distance from the Great Orme are goats. Obviously, if it’s just goats going astray, then at the time of the rut, when they get interested in females again, hopefully they’ll come back. “

With so few people, however, Pidcock says the goats are probably feeling emboldened.
“It’s a little more worrying because it might get a little more complicated for them to find their way back,” she said.
