Lambs Play On Children's Roundabout During Coronavirus Lockdown

And they look like they're having a fantastic time.

The bizarre clips were shared by photographer Andrew Stuart, who spotted the gang of goats roaming the streets, jumping on walls, munching on hedges, and even making it onto people's roofs.

Posting his initial video of the goats running through the empty Llandudno streets, Andrew wrote: I think I just got a group of goats in Llandudno arrested. Let me explain... first, I saw this from inside a dark pub (the one I live in currently). I thought I was seeing things.

"So I decided to see what was going on. They stopped on Trinity Square, and decided the hedges there looked very tasty (tbf, they probably are if you're a goat.)

"They weren't moving from their midnight feast. And they were probably going to run riot on the town, what with nobody being about due to the lockdown. I also wasn't sure if they were keeping the required 2m apart."

According to the BBC, Town councillor Carol Marubbi commented : "They are curious, goats are, and I think they are wondering what's going on like everybody else."

She added: "There isn't anyone else around so they probably decided they may as well take over."

But they stole the hearts of people online, with thousands sharing the photos and videos.

Posting their own snap of them chilling on some grass, one person wrote: "The Great Orme goats have reclaimed Llandudno! Long live our caprine overlords!"
