Goats are some of the most endearing – if stubborn – of creatures in the animal kingdom, and it seems there is nothing that will stop them from indulging their constant hunger. When three goats on a train pass by some delicious trees, they cannot stop themselves from trying to get a mouthful of the delectable greenery. The movement of the train, however, presents them with a challenge that is difficult to overcome.
