This story somehow made national news. I think it’s funny, but before watching it, note that it contains lots of erroneous information about responsible goat keeping. Based on what is said in the article, my opinion is that the owners of Voldemort are not what you’d call responsible goat owners. First, it looks like Voldemort is an only goat and it’s never a good idea to keep just one goat. Goats are herd animals and act out when they are kept alone. They’ll do crazy things, like treeing newspaper boys. Secondly, Voldemort was tethered in the yard. This is not safe. As noted in the story, it’s not very reliable at keeping goats from escaping AND goats can get strangled in the line. Third, goats DO NOT make good lawn mowers. They’ll defoliate rose bushes long before they’ll do a decent job on your lawn. Is this goat getting enough of the right kind of food?
Okay, enough ranting, here’s the kooky goat news piece that went national.
