One of the most neglectful things though is leaving them dead in the pen. Who knows what they dies of , disease, starvation... in any case it's neglect at least.
Depends on how long.
Today I saw a Nanny and her kids laying dead in the yard for I don’t know how long.
If the owner was at work all day, the goats might have looked fine in the morning, died during the day, and been noticed when the owner got home.
And since it was a nanny and her kid, maybe she gave birth and something went wrong? That can easily happen in the time a person is away at work, and if they do not have the option of working from home or missing work, there's not much they can do to prevent it.
I don't know if this was neglect or not, just saying some non-neglect situations can fit the same description we've been given.
