Warning signs ignored by pet goat owner

The owner of a pet goat has been asked to stop walking the animal in Stormont Estate, Northern Ireland, since the warning signs in the park state that only dogs are allowed.

Maya Dunthorpe told the Belfast Telegraph that she has walked her pet goat, named Stan the Man, in the estate twice a month for the past six months, and has never before been asked to leave.

She even said that security guards used to come up to her and ask about Stan.

"It was good for him as it got him used to strangers and it was good for me as I have a dodgy hip, so when it was nice weather, we used to go for a long walk," she told the newspaper.

However, last week, Ms Dunthorpe was asked by park rangers to leave the estate.

"A van pulled up and the two rangers told me I couldn't have a goat in the estate in case it attacked someone. I told them he wasn't aggressive, but they said he wasn't insured and there were signs saying only dogs were allowed on the estate," she told the newspaper.

The Northern Ireland Parliament Buildings are housed in Stormont Estate.
