Comedy duo walks goat around downtown Vancouver (VIDEO)

A Vancouver comedy duo decided to unleash a little weirdness on the city by putting a leash on a goat, walking him around downtown, and capturing it all on video.

Of course, a goat – named Goatee by the pair – walking down Granville Street is rather eye catching, so it’s hardly surprising that the well-mannered animal was inundated with admirers.

Goatee was even armed with a GoPro camera strapped to his back – dubbed the “GoatPro,” to capture peoples’ reactions.

The legality of walking a goat in downtown Vancouver was questioned once or twice, and one person even suggested the goat would make a tasty meal; but overall, people were gaga for Goatee.

Watch the video from the Saturdaymornings below, but please don’t take this as an invitation to start taking your favourite farm animals for a walk.
