A pair of goats which were on the loose in north Norfolk after being spooked by fireworks have now been found. 

The two missing Golden Guernseys were thought to have escaped from their field in north Barningham, near Baconsthorpe, on Saturday (July 8) night.

Owner Jerry Kinsley said the goats – one male and one female – were nowhere to be seen when he went to check on them on Sunday morning and believed they were spooked by nearby fireworks.

However, the goats have now been found safe and well. 

“We think they went missing late Saturday night during the fireworks,” Mr Kinsley said.

“It sounded like a firework display, which for the goats outside would’ve been very loud and frightening.

“We had gone to bed and the fireworks woke us up.

“It just goes to show the dangers to livestock fireworks can have. If we had known we would have locked them up overnight.”

Mr Kinsey said to the goats the fireworks would have sounded like “repeated gunshots”.

The goats are kept as family pets.
