The Lion, The Goat & The Yam

The Lion, The Goat and The Yam

This riddle tried my patience as a child. I never seemed to find the answer.

You are stuck on an island with a lion, a goat and a tuber of yam. Of course you know that left to themselves, the goat will devour the yam and the lion will do the same to the goat. Now, you have come to a small river and have to cross to the other but can only take one of them across at a time. How would you do it so that they don’t eat up themselves?

See if you can ‘fix’ it in 60 seconds…
