The goats had snorkels and flippers. It was a buffalo that had an aqualung.

Quite sure they're harmless and docile unless they're cornered or desperate or whatever,
You mean like on a cliff face with a dafty snuggling up to you pointing a (not so)smartphone in your direction without an appointment?

There's a herd of feral goats in the valley of the rocks near Lynton in North Devon. Makes walking the coast path here interesting. :lol:

Well, they just might end up getting what they deserve - dafties, right enough. Maybe some goats are more docile than others, but I wouldn't have wanted to chance my arm (or anything else!) with the ones I saw.

Actually, the story is quite good. Bonkers, but quite good and thought-provoking.
Mind over matter.
