Environment USA Today: Cities are turning to goats as a sustainable way to clear overgrown, woody areas


My fair city rents goats from some local farms to clear underbrush in the state park land along the river (state park but maintained by the city in this stretch). Its pretty cool. They have this mobile fencing they set up in a large area and just let them go to town. Then they move the fencing to a new area. A very clever idea, IMO.
