Goat Prefers the Lights On

Coleg Cambria’s Northop campus in Wales has a policy to turn off lights to save energy. But the lights were reported on after hours frequently at the goat barn. The staff all swore that they turn the lights off every evening, but the lights continued to be turned back on. Manager Wendy Gacem thought it could possibly be intruders, or even a ghost turning the lights on. But the real perpetrator turned out to be a Bagot billy goat named Jake.

Staff were working in the barn when the lights came on and turned around to see Jake had climbed on his hayrack and pushed the switch with his horns!

Wendy said: “It is a relief that we do not have intruders or a ghost, and animal care staff are relieved that they are no longer being grilled about leaving lights on.

“Jake has been a cheeky character since he arrived and will often jump on to a wheelbarrow to be pushed around.”

The staff at the barn are not only relieved to have the mystery solved, but are also proud of their intelligent rare goat. -via Arbroath
