City Uses Goats’ Appetite For Grass To Lower Fire Hazards

This brilliant and simple plan, nicknamed “Goats Gone Wild,” comes from Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, whose members came up with the idea when faced with trying to find a solution to eliminating summer wildfires. Allowing the goats to eat the long grass, which can become a fire hazard after it dries up, keeps it short and greatly reduces the hazard.

The goats are utilized all over the state, moving from place to place as they complete each job, keeping people safe and their tummies nice and full!
