Happening Upon A Herd Of Urban Goats

Urban Goats!

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!

Not a Baaaad Idea, eh...?

Have a lovely Friday, everyone.
