EPISODE 83: 42 Minutes: I, Pet Goat II

Interesting sync for me here was a story I saw about one of my favourite pieces of real estate on the planet to me - Cape Byron, Byron Bay.

Byron Bay, N.S.W, Australia

Cape Byron

"The last remaining goat on Cape Byron has evaded capture after a daring bid to rescue it from the bottom of a cliff.
Known as Wategoat, the female goat had been trapped at the base of the cliff near Byron's famous Wategos beach, in northern New South Wales, for several days with little food and water.
This morning the RSPCA's animal rescue squad started abseiling down the cliff to save Wategoat, when she made her escape.
Byron Bay resident Elaine Reed says the goat has other plans in mind."
Goat rescue at Cape Byron
""I think she's got a new lease on life and she saw the guys coming and she thought I am getting out of here. I'm not having anything to do with men," she said.
Wategoat has already been on the run for eight years since rangers rounded up the rest of the herd that once roamed free across the cliff at Cape Byron."

  1. Hey! Andy Scott! This is the very same sculptor I mentioned in my recent visit to Leeds...

    "Developer Land Securities commissioned Andy to create two major artworks for their prestigious new Trinity Leeds project, the largest retail development in Europe.

    “Equus Altus” is a 5 metre high two-tonne pack horse, mounted atop a ten metre high 300mm square steel column.

    It observes the hubbub of modern commerce from its lofty position, loaded with a pack of wool commemorating the industry upon which the city of Leeds was founded."

    I've never seen it there,although I haven't been up to the lighthouse for about 2 years,so this sculpture was news to me.
    I only saw these photos
    (and pinched them.-) from the Wiki page about Cape Byron.
    I'll be going down there in a fortnight,so I'll go for a walk if the weather is fine on the day and take a look for myself.

    I wonder if Andy has done any goat sculptures ?-)
