It’s about that time of the year again when the annual baby goat run takes place at Beacon Hill Petting Zoo.
Unfortunately, because of COVID-19, their doors remain closed, at least for now.
But the ongoing coronavirus pandemic isn’t stopping the babies.
Out of the 10 goats, several are pregnant right now, with some ready to give birth at any moment.
“They look as big as a barrel as one says it and we hope it won’t be too long until they welcome their babies here,” said Claudia Laube of the Beacon Hill Children’s Farm.
The Beacon Hill Children’s Farm has had to keep its doors closed because of the pandemic and will likely continue to do so as cases surge in the region.
Fortunately, there’s still a way to sneak a peek at the spring newborns — you can still come up to the fence line to adore the animals from afar.
“We know that people are depressed and need a boost and so that’s why we have the animals here, so people can still enjoy the animals still, but at a distance,” said Lynda Koenders, who is also with the farm.
However, if you can’t make it out to the Beacon Hill Children’s Farm, you can always sponsor a goat to show your support for the popular Victoria attraction.
