This is a prey animal (and he knows that) who has already been attacked not ones, but TWICE by predators who is now immobile and unable to escape a third attack (which he also knows) - - even if you do not believe that he is suffering physically (if that makes you feel better to believe, more power to ya I guess), you have to realize he is suffering mental stress based on the above. For goodness sake, CALL THE VET BACK OUT (yes, I know, you are a minor -- so your parent(s) need to CALL THE VET BACK OUT) and either get this animal up and mobile or put him out of his misery.

Believe it or not, goats are very, VERY sensitive creatures. Even the most minor injuries can put them into shock and kill them. I'd have a vet out.

Never let your prayin knees get lazy
And love like crazy"

yet you let him get attacked twice ? He'd been better off if you left him at the shelter.
