Goats are great for clearing brush, because they'll eat anything. I hear the UW uses a service called Rent a Ruminator. The city might have gotten a clue and done the same thing.
Sorry, that's Rent-a-Ruminant.
you can rent goats to clear hillsides. they eat anything and can deal with steep slopes pretty easily
I love this, all of it
schmader...your brain is shot:
They use those on hillsides in the Bay Area pretty often. I love goats, they're weird and awesome.
A Charlie's Produce truck almost ran me over in front of The Stranger offices this morning. If not for my cat-like reflexes I would have been killed.
The SDOT guys that saw it all were very impressed.
More goats please.
Will in Seattle is setting up a round of speed dating.
City Light has used goats to clear brush around the sub-stations for many years. The kids love it. Maybe the parks department (or whomever is in charge of that) is following their lead?
Goats taste good.
@ 12: Yes. They have goat tacos at Taco Gringos sometimes that are fucking excellent. Stay away from the tongue, though. They make it funny.
is it me or are @8 and @10 courting non-sequitur status?
or is there some slog private joke going on that i dont get?
I think you're only allowed to keep 1 or 2 in the city per household.
Goats that is.
You can have lots of goat tacos, though.
@10: I laughed. Oh, it's sequitur, all right.
@14 is off-comment! Quick, delete that comment, before all of our irony-challenged brains begin to hurt!
And no, I don't feel like letting it go.
and 1 pot-bellied pig per household, pig fuckers. them's the rules!
Off-topic, that is. It was off-topic!
Quick, Slog Censor! Save us all from the Meta Menace!
The Goats album "Tricks of the Shade" was an excellent alt-rap album for sure. I think they are in town promoting a new album.
Laughing at the collie.
This was the BEST part of my day! Watching the goats on the hillside! And the Collie and the other dogs goin CRAZY! More Goats, Seattle!
You love goats? Have you ever looked a goat in the eyes? Goats are pure evil in corporeal form. That's why the dogs were going crazy.
Sorry, yes, completely non-sequitur.
I was thinking in my head when I posted that comment, "speaking of hot-tips... I WAS ALMOST FUCKING HIT BY A TRUCK IN FRONT OF THE STRANGER OFFICES."
I saw those goats (or similar goats) on a hillside by seatac airport today.
Saw the goats just below the dog park above I-5 between Pine and Pike. They rock!
They're still there. I just passed the heard on the way in to work this morning. Snapped some photos with my cell, cuz I love me some goats!!!
I'm lucky I work just a couple blocks away! How often to I get to take my lunch outside and watch goats while I graze? I mean eat? :)
I'm sure the goats were just there to huck the gnar at the Mountain Bike Park.
