naughty goat demoted

a demoted goatA goat named Billy has been demoted, according to News.com.au. Billy belongs to a British army battalion.

Billy Goat has been demoted to "fusilier" (private), because he was naughty in a parade. That goat has been a mascot goat since he was six months old.

I guess British Army haven't acquired the goat-communication skill.

The six-year-old mascot goat for a British army battalion has been demoted in disgrace for kidding around during a parade in full view of dignitaries.

Billy Goat has been a mascot of the First Battalion, the Royal Welsh regiment, since he was six months old and had the official rank of lance-corporal before his frisky antics during a parade marking Queen Elizabeth's official birthday earlier this month.

The army said he had been demoted to fusilier (private) as a result of his behaviour.

“The goat major had a hard time keeping him in line, he was bouncing around all over the place,” military spokesman Captain Crispian Coates said.

Doubly embarrassing was Billy's refusal to obey commands in front of diplomats and army top brass, Coates said.

“This is his first overseas tour. He has certainly not made a good start for himself.”
