Feral goats, Clints of Dromore
Feral goats, Clints of Dromore
Wild goats, which are common in the Galloway Hills are all descendants from originally domesticated stock. They are disliked by foresters because they damage young trees, but not unpopular with shepherds because of their reputation for killing adders. Most wild goats are grey or piebald, and the golden brown colouration of the top goat here is quite unusual.
There is a wild goat park at Talnotry near Murrays Monument where a herd of semi-tame feral goats beg for scraps from the public. (LinkExternal link )
