'He's Figured Out Where the Treats Are' - Determined Goat Opens Kitchen Drawer

An Ohio farmer may think twice about letting some of her animals into her home, after one determined pygmy goat took the chance to have a crack at opening some kitchen drawers, footage shared to Facebook shows.

Tammy Tunison was amused to find one of her goats, Alex, attempting to open drawers at her Oberlin farm, and shared a video of the animal’s valiant attempt on May 22.

Alex is seen biting onto a handle and repeatedly opening and closing the drawer. Tunison, who can be heard saying that the animal has “figured out where the treats are”, does eventually reward him with some snacks.

Just a few days previously, Tunison shared footage of Alex expertly opening drawers in her barn. She regularly films humorous videos of her goats and other pets, posting them to her Hobby Farm Facebook account. Credit: Tammy Tunison via Storyful

- [LAUGHS] Well, is that a little different than the barn drawers? The same kind of handles. I think he's figured it out, except for he can't pull it open because it's a bigger drawer. [LAUGHS]

That is the treat drawer. [LAUGHS]

Goodness gracious. [LAUGHS] I think we're in trouble. He's figured out where the treats are. The drawers I have here in the house-- he's having trouble opening it. [LAUGHS]

Oh, jeez! Oh, goodness gracious! [LAUGHS] Oh, my gosh! [LAUGHS] Oh, just for that, you deserve a treat. Deserve a treat for that baby. No, I've got to get the bag open. What it is in there? What's in there? [LAUGHS] Deserve a treat for that one. Yes, you do.


That's OK, babies. What are you going to do now? [LAUGHS] You could smell it. [LAUGHS] Oh, baby, you're so stinking cute. Goodness. Yes, you deserve another treat for that one because that was so smart. That was so stinking smart. Yes.

Come here, Junior. Because Alex was so good and knew how to open it, I'll give you one too. Come here, Junior. [LAUGHS] There he is. There you are, one more, and that's it. We got to go back outside. Here. [LAUGHS]

Hang on a minute. Hang on. Hang on. [LAUGHS] There. Wait a second. I think I created trouble. [LAUGHS] Alex-- ow! Ouch! [LAUGHS] All right. That's it. That's enough.
