Social media sensation Gary The Goat has sadly passed away at the tender age of six years old. 

Rising to world fame through a comedy partnership with his owner, Australian comedian Jimbo Bazoobi, Gary's "no effs give" attitude was captured in short videos uploaded onto the facebook page Gary The Goat, his audience climbing to 1.74 million followers - a reach that is more than double the combined following of comedians Joel Creasey, Hannah Gadsby, Em Rusciano and Lehmo.

In a heartfelt status update from Jimbo, Gary's legions of fans awoke to the sad news that the world's most-loved goat was put down last night 'after vets diagnosed a bleed from an acute heart tumour, "We'll all miss you Gary. You gave so much happiness to so many people. Rest in Peace mate."
