I am not sure of their breed... maybe a mix of alpine and nigerian dwarf. Judging by their horns, these were older, mature goats...Bucks smell REALLY strongly.... and these guys were no exception.... you could smell them 50 feet away. Buck taint is not a pleasant smell, though maybe a female goat would disagree.
The owner arrived, and sadly, I believe they had no choice really but to dispatch them, as they would not have made it through a winter, and any "natural"death, by freezing or starving, coyote pack, or mountain lion, or being hit by a car, would be prolonged....a gunshot was a quicker, and painless end. It was the right thing to do, but still sad, and I left before the deed was done.
All of which goes as a reminder that when you bring an animal home, and enclose it with a fence, you become responsible for that animal. These guys were not protected. It makes me awfully sad.
