No kidding – these Bagot goats really are the cutest

The first six baby Bagot goats to be born as part of a breeding programme will be heading to Cromer later in the year to join their cousins in keeping the cliff clear.
The herd was originally brought to Cromer in 2016 and the nannies and kids are now having a break away from their habitat management work, at Wiveton Hall.
The goats have become a tourist attraction, and the new additions will be the stars of a forthcoming slot on BBC Radio 4's Farming Today programme.
It's the first time North Norfolk District Council (NNDC) officers have helped rear kids since the Bagots – which are listed as 'vulnerable' by the Rare Breeds Survival Trust – arrived.
Council leader Sarah Butikofer said: 'It was great to see the young goats doing so well, and we are all very proud of the great work that our team is doing with this project.'
