Goats Eat Paper

Goats eat grass and the leaves of trees. Paper is made from wood, and when a goat smells paper, it thinks it is something to eat. If the paper has print on it, it will contain printer's ink and probably other chemicals, and if a goat eats too much of that it may get a tummy ache. There is nothing strange about goats eating paper since it is made from pulp, which is vegetable fibre. They digest it too. Goats have a very strong digestive system, and they are able to digest vegetation that other farm animals would not touch.
