The man who lived as a goat

A London-based designer decided to escape the "existential" life of a human-being by living as a goat for a while.

Thomas Thwaites said he was dog-sitting when he thought "wouldn't it be nice to be an animal for a bit".

Thomas was funded by The Wellcome Trust and had special prosthetics made to fulfil the dream to "gallop through the hills and eat grass" with a goatherd in the Swiss Alps.
