The other night I was watching Dirty Jobs on TV, and they did a skit featuring these Fainting Goats that I have never seen before. Needless to say, I was laughing hysterically like the neanderthal that I am.
Essentially, when the goats get scared, their muscles stiffen up causing them to temporarily fall over. It’s pretty crazy. On most of the videos I came across, people seem to enjoy continuously scaring them so they fall over, but technically the goats are ok.
