Feral Goat

The ability of goats to utilise the coarse browse of mountainous areas made them suitable for domestication in preference to sheep. With large-scale domestication of goats throughout the world, it was only a matter of time before goats escaped and established feral goat herds in the wilds of most continents. Feral goats are declared animals under the Agriculture and Related Resources Protection Act 1976 throughout Western Australia.
