What a silly billy

A female goat got her head stuck between a metal fence.

Animal Collection Officer Emily Welch said: “The goats were kept in an enclosure near Stockton-on-Tees, County Durham, but had somehow got out twice in one day and the second time, this poor goat managed to get her head stuck in the metal fence. She was struggling to free herself and she had her kid with her, who was also very distressed.

“Thankfully we were called and were able to let the goat free.

“We basically had to dig beneath the fence and move the dirt away to create some space to gently push her head down so she could be released.

“Apart from it being a bit of an ordeal for both mother and kid, who was clearly worried for mum, they were both absolutely fine and have now been moved to another enclosure where they won’t be able to get into trouble again!”
