Cape Cod It Got Their Goats

In 1851 the Vineyard Gazette, of Martha’s Vineyard, reported in its May 23 issue, that:

The law recently passed by the Legislature to restrain goats from going at large on this Island provides that all of these animals found running at large after the first day of November next, shall be treated as wild animals, subject to the sportsman’s rifle. The object of the law is to protect young trees from the depredations of these animals.
