Goats have been domesticated for thousands of years and in recent decades they have started to become popular as pets. Among enthusiasts goats are considered to be remarkably intelligent, and recent research published in Frontiers in Zoology has shown that they are able to problem-solve and learn in ways that hitherto were not thought possible.

This has been borne out by another striking discovery; goats are becoming fully independent, adapting to their urbanised surroundings and (almost) blending in unnoticed. While this in itself is not a problem, it has been noticed that some goats are emulating the habits of their former keepers and have taken up begging.

Here is an example seen in Palma recently.
