Legend has it that the story of the Poznan Goats dates back to the 16th century when a butcher's apprentice named Marcin unleashed two mischievous goats into the streets of Poznan. These goats were said to possess magical powers, granting them the ability to bring good fortune to the city. However, their mischievous nature often caused chaos and havoc among the townspeople. Despite their antics, the people of Poznan grew to love and embrace the goats, eventually adopting them as a symbol of their city's resilience and spirit.
