A team of researchers from Queen Mary University of London has found that goat kids can develop accents as they grow older, and recently published its findings in the journal Animal Behaviour. Researchers discovered that when goats were put into mixed social groups, they adjusted the sounds of their calls to be more similar to their peers. From these findings, the researchers are now suggesting that maybe all mammals can develop accents based on their surroundings and not just from their genetics.
The more scientists look into the inner worlds of goats, cows, pigs, chickens and other farmed animals, the more they discover that these animals are intelligent beings with rich emotional and social lives. Like our beloved dogs and cats at home, farmed animals have their own unique personalities and quirks, and they can form tight bonds of friendship with other animals.
Unfortunately, goats raised for milk and meat are routinely subjected to violence, cruelty and neglect that could warrant felony cruelty to animals charges in most states if the victims were dogs or cats instead. But caring consumers can help protect these fascinating animals from needless suffering and death by choosing to transition to a healthy and humane vegetarian lifestyle.
