Meet Turbo, the Nigerian dwarf goat who took Toronto by storm.

Posted on

A very important thing happened in Toronto on Thursday. A goat rode the train into town, went on TV, and just generally hung out being chill AF.

Turbo the goat is in Toronto for the Royal Winter Fair, taking place Nov. 6 to 15. He rode into Toronto on a GO Train early in the morning.

Goat on a train! We have a special guest riding with us today – say hi to @turbo_goat if you spot him! #RoyalGoat

People couldn't take their eyes off him.

Take a selfie with me to win tickets to win tickets to @THERAWF and tag #RoyalGoat

Making all kinds of new friends on @GOtransit on my way to the @THERAWF

According to City News, Turbo made history by becoming the first ever goat to ride the GO Train.

Here's Turbo arriving at Union Station.

Well #Toronto I'm here at @unionstationTO what sights shall I see first! #RoyalGoat

He's kind of a big deal.

@turbo_goat has arrived in #Toronto! Soon we're off to see the sights! #royalgoat #unionstation #goatinthecity

Then it was time to do some sight-seeing.

Going on TV... where he had a bit of an accident.

Turbo then did some more sightseeing on the streetcar.
