Social media users and pages have recently circulated a picture of a herd of goats making its way through the snow. The posts claimed the image was taken in the Moroccan city of Taza.
Misbar investigated the claim and found it to be misleading. The image was not recently taken in Morocco.
Using Image Reverse Search tools, Misbar’s team discovered that the image was posted to Turkish Instagram profiles back in January 2021. According to the posts, the picture was taken in the Turkish city of Bingöl.
