Poor state of city goats

20170514_163514

During my evening walk in neighbourhood last weekend, I come across some goats grazing around the garbage bins, few houses away from the pretty one you saw in my previous post. This is not the first time seeing them feeding on the waste matters thrown out as useless, this is a regular sight at this neighbourhood area, with a road lead to the corporation  school and a temple and another goes around a posh area. But this scene hasn’t changed for long.

I know these are goats reared by some people of the resident area on the road ahead and the goats were left always on the road and some time they come to our street in search of food and I have seen them standing on their rear legs munching on the leaves and branched hanging outside the compounds. I really feel bad for their state of living and I have no idea about their rearing in a city.  If they can’t feed them properly its better give up and they live well somewhere.

They not only feed on garbage but also wander on streets put risk on riders as well the goats. Goats need space or at least a shed to live together and taken care by the owner, but they well survive in villages than cities. (All were captured in mobile)

Hello, the goats are cute. I would think they would be happier in a grassy area and not in the city. Great photos! Thanks so much for linking up your post. Happy Saturday, enjoy your weekend!

I feel sorry for them too. They need a green field!

The goats roam the city like the dogs here roam the streets. Street wise goats!

I thought only dogs and cattle roam like this on the road! Now, these also:)

It may be better to leave them on green meadows than city roads.

I think goats will eat anything...wondering if they are friendly and like to be petted or do they run away?

What a sad state for the goats. They should be living somewhere with plenty of green grass!!

Poor goats - they are probably better off in the countryside.

I've never seen goats wandering a city - I would think they'd prefer a more grassy area. They're pretty cute, though!

Hello Jeevan!:) Thank you for sharing these goat photos. They are well captured with your mobile. I feel sorry for any animal that has to scavenge to survive.

Goats feeding on garbage is surprising.Monkeys and dogs are a common sight here in the hills. Dogs are a menace at garbage heaps at Patiala.But I've not seen goats roaming. In your case goat owners
Should be hauled and punished.

That is sad state of affairs in our cities.
