It’s depressing to again hear tradition being touted as an excuse for subjecting a wild animal to a stressful ordeal for human amusement.

Hoisting a goat in a cage 60 feet above a Kerry town in the middle of a heatwave might strike some people as fun, but it’s not such a wholesome event when considered from the vantage point of the unfortunate animal.
