Beware the Devil Goats: A cautionary folk horror fairy tale

They might look friendly enough, but you should never mess with a goat.

We've all heard tales of how they might - just might - be in league with the Devil or some other diabolical characters, and it pays to keep on their good side.

As this cautionary folk horror fairy tale reveals, a Welsh farmer who acted rashly pays a heavy price for his actions, which culminates in one of the most terrifying goat-related scenes ever to be committed to a podcast.

In episode 41 of the Ghosts and Folklore of Wales podcast, journalist and author Mark Rees (Ghosts of Wales) reveals all in this atmospheric tale from the archives.

Tune in now... if you dare!
