FCC would probably fine them if they didn't.
I hate Caillou. That little brat would be enough to turn me pro-spanking.
I've been researching goats for a couple of years off and on... (someday, someday) and remembering reading the pros and cons and thinking, "Wow I can say I'm pro-bottlefeeding for kids." The bottle-fed goats are much more tame, and since you're milking the goats, it's not like they're going to get formula. Since I want the small Nigerian Dwarf goats I would like to find the time to bottle-feed since you can sell the wethers as pets, I wouldn't care so much if they were just going to be butchered for meat. As a kid, I played with my baby goat like it was a dog and it wasn't bottle-fed so not so worried about them not being gentle enough for the children.
(Of course if they're going to be for meat, it's probably better the kids play with him less anyway so they're less attached... "You see boys, there's a reason we named the goat Stewy..."
