It is - but it's not usually on sale in local butchers - unless you are prepared to eat halal stuff - which I am not.

Re: Welsh Goats

They will have the devil of a job getting them back up into the hills now they have discovered easy pickings....

It's the deer where I live strolling about at night like they own the place....actually they most probably do before we stole it from them

Re: Welsh Goats

The goats would be wise to head for the hills, the way things are going with the lockdown they could end up in someone's curry

They're probably pregnant this time of year too, or have not long given birth.
They'll end up eating something from people's gardens that will make them ill soon. Poor things.

Re: Welsh Goats

Llandudno goats sent to Bristol and Bournemouth to control numbers



https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-wales-57849393

The goats made headlines after venturing from the Great Orme into the town of Llandudno at the start of lockdown. Now 30 will be moved to Bristol and Bournemouth to try to control numbers.

Conwy council said it hoped the relocation would keep numbers at "sustainable levels".

Numbers spiked when the pandemic meant contraceptive jabs could not be given to the goats as usual. As they ventured further into the town, there were fears some could be hit by cars as restrictions were eased.

The goats have now been rounded up, with some given contraceptive injections to make sure the numbers in Llandudno remain stable, the council said. The 19 female goats given a birth control hormone will stay in Llandudno.

A further 30 animals have been sent to Bristol and Bournemouth to be part of "conservation grazing projects". The aim is for the goats to eat invasive and aggressive plant species, allowing rarer plants to grow through.

A count of goat numbers in Llandudno is due to take place later this year during the mating season, but the number remaining in the town is thought to be over 100.
I'm glad that it's relocation and not culling .....
