Once destined for the slaughterhouse, a goat has managed to change its fate by becoming a social media star in China.
A young goatherd from rural Shanxi province named Li Fu now boasts more than 300,000 followers on Kuaishou thanks to his gluttonous goat, posting a number of humorous videos showing the animal stealing food away from him.
While goats are certainly not known as particularly peckish eaters, Li says that he had noticed that this one was particularly ravenous, taking a keen interest in whatever he might be eating, from instant noodles to kebabs.
And it is that greed which has managed to save the animal’s life. Li says that while he had intended to sell the animal to the slaughterhouse, he has now decided to keep it because of all the social media followers.
