Amazed onlookers could not hide their amusement when they spotted this goat seeming to hitch a ride with a cyclist.

The animal looks unconcerned, casually looking around as the man pedals alongside traffic through Addis Ababa in Ethiopia.

The video, uploaded to YouTube on Wednesday, has been viewed more than 150,000 times.

It is unclear how the goat was attached to the man but commenters have speculated that its legs were tied and it could have been on the way to a market for slaughter.

The animals are used for meat, leather and milk production in Ethiopia and almost half of the country's income comes from agriculture.

It is the second-largest country in Sub-Saharan Africa, with a population of about 92 million people.

Despite fast growth in some areas of the economy, GDP per capita is still among the lowest in the world and food production is beset by droughts.
