James Archibald, who posted video of the rescue on Facebook, said he and a friend visiting from England were on their way to a fishing spot near Kimberly when they spotted the goat in distress.
June 21 (News) — Two men heading to a fishing spot in British Columbia finally rescued a baby mountain goat that appeared to have fallen and become stuck between two large rocks.
Archibald said they climbed about 100 feet up the cliff face to reach the animal.
“It looked to me like the goat was playing dead because it wasn’t squeaking. She just kind of had this blank look in her eyes, kind of ‘Are you trying to hurt me?’ thing,” Archibald told Global News.
Archibald filmed his friend Martin Rouse working to remove the goat from between the rocks.
He said the goat walked away to rejoin her mother, who was watching the rescue from close up.
