Two Minutes of Nothing But Goats Yelling Like Humans

It's not entirely clear why it took this long for someone to put together a two-minute compilation of goats whose bleats sound like screaming humans, but let's all just be glad someone finally did.

I loved the one that appears to be arguing, over the fence, with the man. That seems very similar to animosity displayed, over the fence, between human neighbors.

8. Brings back a horrible memory

My dad grew up in south Texas on a ranch, they really did slaughter their own food as needed. fast forward many,many, many years later my father along with my uncle go to a farm belonging to one of my step moms cousins. They had given my family a goat and my dad was going to slaughter it in the way he used to. So, he proceeds to take a knife and tries to cuts the goats neck for it to bleed out. Well, I guess he hadn't slaughtered goats in so long his goat killing knife was to dull and he ended up sawing at this poor things neck while it screamed so loud and so humanlike I had to leave and cover my ears. I went behind the barn and waited it out, my uncle was already there covering his ears also.

66. Might explain why some goats sound human

the more human they sound the less chance of being slaughtered therefor being able to more likely pass on their genes.

the poor confused thing probably thinks that's how you talk goat. Once time when I was at the SPCA i kept hearing a dog barking up in a tree, then up on a telephone pole. It turned out to be a nutty crow who was mimicking the yapping dogs at the SPCA.

64. I love all of the videos posted in this thread, but

I simply can't get enough of Jerry Lewis Goat and Clucking Chicken Goat. O. M. G. I have watched them both several times and I just laugh and laugh. This morning I played them again for my husband and we were both in stitches - just gut-busting, tears streaming, can't breathe laughter. Sometimes, things just hit you right and you are gone - this morning was one of those times.

That kind of laughter is good for the soul.
