According to t study conducted by the Eurostat, Greece is the clear EU champion — in regard to the number of goats, that is.

More specifically, according to the European Union’s Agriculture, report for 2019, Greece comes first having approximately 3,625,000 goats living on its territory.
The second place is taken by Spain, with almost a million fewer goats than Greece.
The nation of Spain has a goat population reaching 2,765,000, while Romania comes in third place, with 1,539,000 goats.
France follows next, having 1,252,000 goats living on its territory.

It’s worth mentioning that all of these EU member-states have a much larger land area than Greece, yet Greece’s mountainous countryside has somehow proven throughout history to be much more hospitable to these adorable animals!
