Frostie the Snowgoat, who was fitted with his own tiny wheelcart to help him walk, has died.

Little Frostie, who was living at an animal rescue sanctuary called Edgar’s Mission in Australia, had departed from his wheelchair when he fell ill on Monday but died shortly after.

The animal sanctuary fitted him out with a harness and set of wheels after contracting a disease called joint navel ill shortly after he was born.

"For such a tiny goat, who only danced on this earth for a short while, his reach has been enormous.

"As the little guy made his last gasps of breath he looked into my tear-filled eyes as I begged him to stay. I told him I loved him and would do so forever more," Pam Ahern wrote in a blog.
