LLANDUDNO, WALES — A pack of wild goats has chosen to not self-isolate during the COVID-19 pandemic and instead run amok in a small seaside town in northwest Wales.
Usually forced to limit their social interactions on a nearby limestone bluff, the Kashmiri mountain goats were spotted roaming around the town of Llandudno, whose residents have been forced to remain indoors during Britain’s national lockdown.
With the streets clear of people, the curious animals were caught on camera congregating in church parking lots, nibbling on hedges, strutting across stone walls, crossing pedestrian walkways, and just generally having a grand ol’ time.
Obviously these goats are living their best quarantined life – carpe diem!

.@NWPolice are urging people not to travel to see the Llandudno goats as it “is not essential.” The goats rose to fame after they were spotted wandering around the town yesterday ???? https://t.co/FNc52PLva0 pic.twitter.com/XA7uNKx1Jr
