Toot your horn! Goats hold up traffic after leaving hills for town centre

A herd of goats has turned up in a town centre after bad weather drove the animals from their hilly home.

Some of the wild herd of Kashmiri goats on the Great Orme in Llandudno, North Wales, have wandered into the town.

Pictures posted on social media show the goats holding up traffic and nibbling flowers in people’s gardens.

A Conwy Council spokeswoman said: “Goats going into town is not unusual, particularly at this time of year, there is no way of stopping them – it’s more likely in foul weather as they look for lower ground and shelter.”

The goats were a gift to Lord Mostyn from Queen Victoria and, although originally in the ownership of the Mostyn estate in Llandudno, the goats are regarded as wild animals.
