So my mom and I were talking and somehow the fact we're going to have eggs came up and she sort of joked that we could be "self sufficient" so I was joking too about other animals, like we could get a cow, or goats or rabbits, etc. And she stopped me and said "oh goats have that real bad disease. We're not getting goats." i was sort of like "what?" and she was all like "oh yeah you can die from goats. That's how those two little boys at that petting zoo died" I tried to say "you have to wash your hands and those aren't really clean" (because let's face it, how clean are most petting zoos?) and she was just like "yeah but" or something like that. Just sure they had diseases. SO. Do goats actually have some deadly disease that you'll die from just from having them? Surely if that was true there would either be no goats or a lot of feral goats since all the humans that owned them would all be dead? It just makes no sense and I have no clue what she's talking about AT ALL or what little boys she's talking about or anything. Please help.
