Spain’s Running of the Bulls event might have been axed over coronavirus — but these goats kept the tradition alive here in the States … with a wild scattering of their own.
Check out this video captured Tuesday night in a residential neighborhood near San Jose, CA — where what looks like a couple hundred goats stampeded (eh, fiercely totted more like, actually) down a sleepy street as neighbors were trying to corral them.
It’s certainly not as intimidating as what goes on in Europe — goats to bulls are apples to oranges — but still, it’s crazy considering we don’t see this all too often around these parts.
Now, as for how this got started in the first place — apparently, there’s a little hillside ranch of some sort that borders these homes here, and a gaggle of goats are brought in each year for a few days to eat and clear out the dead grass to avoid a wildfire breaking out. Neat!!
Somehow, the goats broke through their enclosure … and they all made a run for it. Fortunately, they didn’t cause too much damage — other than some front yard flower munching and unrestrained defecating — and eventually … the townsfolk reined ’em in.
It also looks like one of the local hounds played impromptu sheep dog to get the herd back where they belonged. Good boy! Baaah-d goats 😅
