A population of goats in north Wales has skyrocketed after a planned contraception campaign was cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic, causing concern for local residents.
The goats of the Great Orme headlands hit the headlines last year after they were photographed taking over the deserted streets of Llandudno while residents were in lockdown.
Now, after a spike in numbers, there are fears for the animals' safety with more and more goats venturing into town.
According to the BBC, the Kashmiri goats are exploring further than ever, leaving officials worried they may set up in a new territory.
And with lockdown restrictions easing there are concerns some animals may be hit by cars and not make it back to their homes in the mountains.
"There seems to be a rogue herd of goats that have wandered across the town into a completely new area where they have never been... that's a concern," Louise Emery, who represents the Great Orme area of Llandudno on Conwy council, told the BBC.
"It's a great concern at night time, actually, because they tend to wander more at night and the roads have been very quiet.
"Drivers can literally come round the corner and be faced with eight or nine goats in the road."
Although the goats often visit the town in the spring to look for food, the numbers this year are considerably higher than in the past.
Sally Pidcock, warden of the Great Orme country park, said it was believed there were around 30 billy goats on the loose, with around 150 other males, females and kids back on the Great Orme.
She said the billy goats - which tend to be larger and travel more - had grown "emboldened by the fact there are so few people around".
COVID-dependent, wardens are hoping to count the goats and give them contraceptive injections later this year.
