The goat’s stuck down the well!

Cartagena fire fighters carried out a muddy rescue on Friday after four male goats found themselves trapped down a well.

Nobody quite knows how the males ended up down the well, whether to avoid the Christmas earache from their families, or just to try to bury their heads in the sand, or perhaps a goat-related reason, but they certainly couldn’t get themselves out without the help of the rope-clad rescuers.

The drama unfolded in the town of Perina, when the animals were located 20 metres down the La Torre Nicolás Pérez well. With the help of ropes and harnesses the fire fighters were able to extract the animals safely, although all were a little muddy as a result.
