Blind Rescue Goat Suffering From Anxiety Only Calms Down In Her Duck Costume

Rescue goat Polly was suffering from anxiety until one day her owner got her a duck costume that changed the goat’s life forever! The poor animal is blind, has neurological problems and is severely underweight. Little did her owner know that the duck costume she got from the kid’s section at Marshalls would help her goat go from anxious and stressed, to all zen and chill! “As soon as I put it on her, she just instantly got calm,” Leanne Lauricella from Goats Of Anarchy told The Dodo.

Before that, Polly would be frantically running around and crying if she couldn’t find her owner. She would also show some other anxiety related behavior. “She’ll find a corner of a wall in the house, and she’ll just start sucking on the wall,” says Lauricella. “So all the corners in our house have these little suck marks from her mouth.”

Well, these days are over, all thanks to the duck outfit. “There’s something about that duck costume that calms her” Lauricella says. “She goes into a little trance. She just closes her eyes and she’s out.”

Also why is she in a trolly?? it looks very unnatural & uncomfortable!I am delighted she is doing well but I think the owner could take the goats needs and natural behaviour on board a bit more!

As nice as this story is: how did they get the idea to put a goat in a duck costume at the first place? o_O

My aunt has a pet goat and when she was small she bought her little dresses from petsmart that are for dogs. She wore them when they walked around town.
