It was a year ago. I was driving down the street, and I saw them – were they wild dogs? I slowed… then the car behind me slowed as well… they… they were goats! Wow!
I was fascinated – they were alone, under some trees, behind a hastily put-up fence. Two days later, I’d just returned home and was checking my RSS feeds. On the Slog newswire was a headline “Goats in Capitol Hill!”
I grabbed my camera and whisked off – it was nearly dark, and this was something that must be captured!
Amazing. On a hill between the dog park and the freeway, were a whole bunch of happily munching goats! There were many people looking on, taking cell phone photos, laughing, and enjoying the bizarre sight. A community-building moment to be sure.
I learned later that the city rents them – I’ve seen them in other parts of town since. One of those fun little sustainability sights in the city!
Have a lovely Friday, everyone.
