A group of goats took over a UK town on coronavirus lockdown and the photos are incredible

A group of goats took over the mostly deserted streets of a northern Wales town as the United Kingdom was on lockdown due to the coronavirus outbreak.

The streets of Llandudno are usually filled with tourists and locals but instead saw a herd of mountain goats roam freely on Tuesday.

The goats normally live out on the Great Orme, a rocky headland northwest of town, and occassionally come into the outskirts of Llandudno during windy weather.

With people in the village and all of Britain told to stay home to slow the spread of the new coronavirus, the goats were able to get a little closer than normal and explore.

Residents said their new neighbors were eating leaves and bushes in the town square.
