I like the fact that you obviously considered this and had to make a rule to not use a live goat.

To check batteries. Mine died on me mid october in moist, cold, foggy weather. Which means it is no fun at all to detach it with cold fingers. Have a Battery check in case it is doing it job for more than three years and replace it when in doubt.
