Goat-scaping

This is too much fun to not share.

There are goats in Downtown LA right now.
About 100 of them, 4 blocks from me. They will be here for two weeks. They were brought in to clear brush and weeds from a steep site in the small Angels Knoll park next to Angel's Flight. At $3,000, they are cheaper than human labor (about $7,500). For those of you not from LA, they have been using goats around here for a while to help cut down on fire risk. But, you don't often see them in the middle of the city!

Go go gadget Goat-scaping!

This is such an amazing use of goats. I wish more cities would do this sort of thing in order to clear brush.
