GoatKingA goat named Louis was crowned King of Ireland on Thursday in one of the country’s oldest festivals.

Each year a wild male mountain goat is caught in the foothills of Carrauntoohill, Ireland’s highest mountain, and paraded through the country town of Killorglin as part of the Puck Fair — an annual festival of music, drinking and dancing.
