Venice gets dolphins; Llandudno gets goats.
A HERD of goats have taken over a deserted town sparking a cop callout as officers tried to remove the animals. The 12-strong group was spotted on Friday evening running around Llandudno, North Wales, as locals obeying curfew laws.
Andrew Stuart spotted them outside his pub window and dialled 101 as the goats were “going to run riot” in the town as no-one could come out to herd them away.
North Wales Police arrived in a patrol car and tried to chase them back to the Great Orme where they are believed to have come from.
He said he “thought I was seeing things” when he spotted them munching on a hedgerow outside his pub and “as they weren’t moving from their midnight feast” he called the cops. Andrew added: “They sent a patrol car down who turned on the big red lights. So, I’m sorry if the goats got arrested. But they were being very naughty. Also, close the gates behind you on the Orme. And stay 2m apart at all times.”
Despite North Wales Police moving the herd out Andrew tweeted again on Saturday to show they had returned.
He joked: “They’re back and they’re gathering in groups of more than two.”
Footage showed them wandering around the ghost town and nibbling on locals’ hedges as no-one could come out to stop them. The Great Orme goats are well known troublemakers in the area
