Video: Goat Breaks Two Glass Office Doors

It is not so strange if you understand goats, but at least one news station called this goat attack “an absolute mystery.” What happened: The goat saw and instinctively attacked its own reflection. I’ve posted a big horn sheep attacks glass story in the past, but for some reason this is just fun to watch.

Here’s a cheesy news story with the same footage:

Goats do attack mirrors. Here’s a clear example:

Not all goats, however, attack all mirrors.

Tips on avoiding goat attacks:

Stay Together – Goats can easily mistake a lot of people close together or with their coats held open as a much larger animal that they do not want to face. Don’t separate — goats are much more likely to attack a single person than a group.

Using Aversive Conditioning or Hazing Techniques – Scare or frighten goats exhibiting unwanted behavior through noise stimuli (screaming, sirens, noise horns, cracker shells) or contact stimuli (snowballs, rocks, beanbags, slingshots or by waving clothing around)

Moral: Make sure your insurance covers animal attacks … and always take plenty of beanbags when hiking in goat territory?
