Rescued blind goat finds comfort in fake feathers

Many people suffer from anxiety, and so do a lot of animals.

When the team at Goats of Anarchy, a goat rescue center in Annadale, New Jersey, realized their blind goat Polly was suffering from anxiety, they figured out an interesting solution to calming her down.

They gave her a duck costume.

It looks silly, but Polly's owner Leanne Lauricella told the little goat likes wearing the costume and more importantly, it eases her anxiety.

"I tried a ThunderShirt, it didn't work," she said. "There's something about that duck costume that calms her. She goes into a little trance. She just closes her eyes and she's out."

Goats of Anarchy posted a video on Instagram Saturday of Polly in her feathered finest that has already been viewed more than 66,000 times.

In addition to her duck costumes, Polly is known to dress as a pig, a pea pod and a certain “Legally Blonde” star.

Lauricella said she started Goats of Anarchy in 2014 to rescue and rehabilitate baby goats with special needs. To learn more about the group, visit
