This is why there was a goat on the Tube this morning

There was a goat on the Tube at Vauxhall this morning - here's it going through the ticket barriers.

It prompted one commuter to make this face:


The reason? Because PR. A spokesperson for Transport for London told i100 they brought an Alpaca and two goats (named Ben, Fred and Barney respectively) to Vauxhall station shortly after rush hour to celebrate the launch of a new above ground map of the Victoria line which features illustrations of the enjoyable things to do near its stations.

While the animal trio, from Vauxhall City Farm, went through the gates they did not actually get on a Tube train as goats are not allowed on the tube. And the final insult: they did not use an Oyster card.
