Invading Horde of Brush-Eating Goats

I didn’t think I had a post for today and then something happened.  GOATS!  We’ve lived in the same apartment for upwards of 6 years with a brushy hillside behind it.  I think I can say with some confidence that it has never been covered in goats.  Until today, anyway.

Goat BABIES!?!!

Oh yeah – they brought goat BABIES!

Goats Gone Wild

Sometimes the goats get that crazy look thing going, but hey – it’s goats.  In the city.  Eating the plants.  Confusing the pedestrians.  It was all right.

Goats getting their eat on.

Even in 90 degree temperature, they do what they’re supposed to do, and they’re going to be back tomorrow, in double the numbers, to do it some more.  Check out the gallery below for more picture.

  1. Why doesn’t anything like this ever happen outside my apartment? Oh yeah–because there’s no vegetation. Aside from the bamboo at the condo complex across the street. Perhaps I should start a letter-writing campaign to get the city to bring in pandas to combat the out-of-control bamboo.
