These Encounters Show That Goats Are Nature's Pranksters (VIDEO)

With their oddly rectangular pupils, floppy ears and seemingly mischievous smile, goats are easily one of nature’s most amusing tricksters. Because they have specially adapted hooves, few goats have ever met a wall they couldn’t climb. Even when its one like this:

If this image gives you the heebie-jeebies, keep in mind that a goat’s hooves are adapted for climbing steep rocks, and well, the steep walls of dams when necessary.

Goats Are Nature’s Practical Jokers

Like this goat, for instance, whose name just happens to be Brenda. One woman decided to take her kids to a local farm and they discovered a goat with her head seemingly stuck in a fence. And it seems like Brenda had a knack for tricking people.

As a result, news of this lovable goat made its way around the social media.

Apparently, many goats can wind up stuck in a fence

“We had a goat like this,” commented one user, below the photo which was posted on Imgur. “Snowball would get stuck so often it was a rotating job for one of us to go check on her every few hours.”
