  1. This photo won me free zoo membership for a my wife and I for a year in Seneca Park Zoo's 2015 Photo Contest. Posted 4 years ago
    1. That is cool, congrats! Are they using the photo for a particular purpose? Posted 4 years ago
      1. There were 12 winners (I don't know anything about the other winners, or how many entries there were), and the plan is for each winner to be the banner image for the Seneca Park Zoo website for one month.

        However, they have permission to use the photo for any promotional purpose they want, and they're currently in the process of redesigning their website, so the specific way they'll use each photo might change.

The domestic goat is a subspecies of goat domesticated from the wild goat of southwest Asia and Eastern Europe. The goat is a member of the family Bovidae and is closely related to the sheep as both are in the goat-antelope subfamily Caprinae. There are over 300 distinct breeds of goat. Goats are one of the oldest domesticated species, and have been used for their milk, meat, hair, and skins over much of the world.

In the 20th century, they have gained popularity as pets. Female goats.. more
