Anaconda, Target, and Tumblr: Joe Parris @KTVBJoe #Breaking-About 100 goats are on the loose right now in a #Boise neighborhood. They are going house to house eating everything in sight. Nobody has a clue where they came from...updates to follow wingedkiare: morathor: tastefullyoffensive: The goatpocalypse is upon us. (via KTVBJoe) Updates have since come on this subject; we now know where the goats came from and I gotta tell you, it is better than you could possibly imagine.  See. These goats got loose from a goat rental service. You may be thinking, who rents a goat?  Who rents a hundred goats?  What are they for? They’re for eating. Specifically, they’re for eating unwanted, flammable vegetation that can contribute to the spread of wildfires.  Some people whose property tends to grow such vegetation, keep their own goats.  But for some people it works out better to just rent some goats. So. These are Professional Eating Goats.  They are trained to thoroughly and methodically scour an area of plantlife.  And they came to the suburbs. And they did their jobs. I’m so proud of them. I can confirm that’s what kind of goats they are - they use them here in LA in the canyon areas to help keep all those pretty buildings and homes safe from wildfire (it isn’t uncommon to see goats near the Getty Museum). Because the terrain is just too weird for people to climb and clear brush - but goats? Totally their jam.
