Standoff: Rooster vs. baby goat

Just in: baby goat and rooster go mano a mano. This battle is a mismatch, for the rooster could hurt the goat, even putting out its eye. Fortunately, no mammals or birds were harmed in the making of this video.

The YouTube notes:

Occurred on August 25, 2020 / Cumming, Georgia, USA

“The baby goats [sic] name is Luna, she’s a Nigerian dwarf goat. She is two months old in this video. The rooster’s name is Little Rodney and he’s 3 months old. They are the best of buds most of the time. They are always close to each other. Not sure if the rooster thinks he’s a goat or the goat thinks she’s a rooster. Neither one hurt the other and they do this often.”

    If anyone is triggered by the goat, help is at hand from the Childhood Goat Trauma Foundation! 😉

    I’m triggered by thinking that most likely our pet goat in Martinique got eaten after we left.

    I see those flashing rooster feet and it makes my eyes water. Good thing the rooster went easy on the baby goat who seems to have no idea of the danger.

      Yes, this seems to be a goat play/learning behavior. Perhaps the rooster has dealt with it before. I saw a video the other day of a goat trying that with a cat. The cat was also mostly tolerant.
