The Goat Island goats are always transported off the island in late fall, but they were evacuated a little early last year before Hurricane Matthew hit the area in October. They are then transported back to their island on Tax Day, which fell on Tuesday, April 18 this year.

The East Coast BrewBoat, South Carolina’s first “pedal pub,” assisted in the bringing the goats back to the island on Tuesday.

Since 2006, the goats have had some company on the island: a muster of peacocks. Also, a group of peacocks is called a muster. You just learned something new today!
