The domestic goat (Capra aegagrus hircus) is a subspecies of goat domesticated from the wild goat of southwest Asia and Eastern Europe.

The goat is a member of the family Bovidae and is closely related to the sheep as both are in the goat-antelope subfamily Caprinae. There are over 300 distinct breeds of goat. Goats are one of the oldest domesticated species, and have been used for their milk, meat, hair, and skins over much of the world. In 2011, there were more than 924 million live goats around the globe, according to the UN Food and Agriculture Organization.

I learned two things from this video: 1) Never argue with a spitting goat. 2) Some times you just need to walk away, because you cant win every fight.

Not sure if these are goats or as a commenter said Katahdin sheep but they are still cute and it is just as hilarious ; posted on WOWK 13 News (ABC in Charleston, West Virginia) FB page
