Editor's Choice Pictures of the Day - Goats do Roam in New York - April 12, 2012

Follow @wgpix

Meet Cocoa, a 3-year-old Alpine Pygmy mixed goat who lives with its owner Fakroddin in Summit, New Jersey. They frequently take trips into Manhattan to enjoy the city. Fakroddin raised Cocoa since she was 2 months old and treats her like a human. "She doesn't like goats, she doesn't like farms, she likes the people and the city." Fakroddin said.

A very interesting and wonderful camaraderie these two have! That's a cute and fun goat, only it should be exposed to other animals around the neighbourhood too.

I;m surprised Cocoa is allowed on the subway. I love this story, though.
