AN APPEAL has been made to the public not to attempt rescuing what they think are kids abandoned by their mother nanny goats.

This is the time of the year goats give birth and are frequently left by their mothers who go away to feed.

Sally Pidcock, warden of the Great Orme country park said: “We would appeal to the public to leave apparently abandoned kids alone, as nanny goats frequently leave them in a place they think is safe so they can go away and feed.

“But the public often see what they think is a cute and vulnerable kid and take them away perhaps to an animal rescue. It is far better to leave them where they are as their mothers know how to look after them perfectly well.

“However if a member of the public is rally concerned what they should do is contact the RSPCA or us in the country park, tel: 01492 874151.
