The goats are back in town to enjoy local fare

SEATTLE— The Seattle Department of Transportation has again invited a herd of goats to a feast of wild growth on some of our steep hillsides.

The first venue is under the Alaskan Way Viaduct between Lenora and Blanchard streets. We expect the herd of 110 goats from Rentaruminant to remain here for a week.

Once this hillside has been cleared, the herd will move under the Jose Rizal Bridge on the north side of Dearborn Street at 12th Avenue South for three to four days to clear that area.

SDOT has found using goats to clear slopes that are difficult for us two-footed creatures to reach is an effective method to maintain these areas.
