It seems that LA is onto the goat crusade, finding that goats can be cost effective and efficient in vegetation management issues…
Agency officials said the goats were cheaper and more environmentally friendly than two-legged brush-clearers armed with gasoline-powered weed-whackers.
And they are much more fun to watch, downtown office workers and other passersby quickly decided, as the animals fanned out over the 45-degree slope and chowed down.
It doesn’t surprise me that this solution has come only at the end of decades of cheap oil, after petroleum products have wreaked their havoc over the environment.
When will other communities in North America start understanding that choosing alternatives to gas, where feasible (even if you feel stupid doing it!) is important?
