Wild Animals of Ireland - Feral Goats
Feral Goats can be found in many coastal and upland areas of Ireland particularly along the west coast. It is thought that goats were first brought to Ireland about 4000 years ago by early settlers. Over the years many escaped while others were released, eventually forming wild populations that we see today. They roam the hillsides in herds, often in relatively large numbers feeding on any vegetation they find such as grasses, heathers, young trees and shrubs. Breeding usually takes place in late autumn and kids are generally born in early spring.
