C133. Baer (p. 130). Brother Billy Goat Eats His Dinner

This is Chase133.

K1723 goat pretends to be chewing rock; frightens wolf

Clarke has one references, and lambrecht has two, both with goat and elephant

Flowers has goat frightening Zamba.

Jones has Lion not Wolf.

Baer concludes: "The absence of analogues except those noted in Africa and the West Indies would indicate an African source for this tale."
