Goat hugs owner, cries like human when going to be sold

A goat brought to be sold cries and hugs its owner like a child.

In the short clip, a goat can be seen hugging its owner and crying like a human while parting from him. It was actually brought to be sold in the market. However, as soon as the goat started wailing, its owner and other people around too were moved to tears.

“Goat brought to be sold hugs owner, cries like human,” reads the caption of the post. “Even animals who can’t speak have feelings and emotions. Despite not being able to speak, they love their owner dearly. When separated from the owner, their soul hurts,” it reads further.

Actually, the user isn’t far off because goats cry or “bleat” to communicate. They may make noise if they are hungry, hurt, or if there is a threat to their herd.

“Mother goats may also call to their young kids when they get separated,” according to the Natural History Museum.

“Very hurtful, broke my heart,” a user wrote.

Another user commented, “Obviously, the owner is upset as well. We don’t know his situation. He may need money to keep his family afloat or for a dowry for his daughter.”

“I really cried after watching this video,” a third user remarked.

The footage was shared on Twitter by @ram_vegan, and aside from the flute instrumental.

Still, the video wasn’t just a sweet display of affection, as one Twitter user suggested that it should make people reconsider their meat-eating habits, adding, “If you eat meat, you too are a part of this.”


Before going on to say: “There will come a time where humans will have to answer for all these.

“Nature will do it for us one day brutally.”
