Goats literally scared stiff in kids' experiment

October 23, 2011 12:00:00 AM PDT
A group of young students from Plain Dealing, La. was recently caught on video harassing a group of goats, but it's not what you think.

It was all part of a science experiment. The kids were learning about a unique breed of goats that have a genetic disorder that causes them to faint whenever they get scared.

The students had fun testing out this theory.

The goats eventually overcome this condition after they grow accustomed to being scared.

Experts say the muscular stiffness does not hurt the goats in any way.
