Regular readers of these pages know that I try to help you how to be prepared for just about any kind of plague or invasion. But, this is one for the record books!
A formerly peaceful neighborhood in Boise, Idaho, was recently overrun by a gang of rowdy goats! According to local KTVB reporter Joe Parris, the region was literally “taken over by about 100” of them.
As Parris reported on the “Goat Apocalypse,” with dozens of the animals in the background, he wondered aloud for his viewers, “Who are these goats? Where did they come from? What propelled them to go rogue?”
He noted, that the animals were “snacking on lawns and flower bushes, and stripping the leaves from trees,” as goats are wont to do.
The news outlet discovered that the goats appeared to belong to a local company, We Rent Goats, which, aptly, rents out herds of goats for people to use to “clear weeds and help with fire suppression on private land and public property,” KTVB said.
Wow go know. Who needs landscapers when you can just rent a goat?
But before you sell your John Deere on eBay, it seems the concept still has a kink or two in it. These goats apparently weren’t particularly focused on their work and wandered off their job site, to find, shall we say, greener pastures?
Luckily, We Rent Goats tracked down their reckless “employees” and loaded them into a truck, and promptly returned them to work!
Well, now I’ve “herd” everything!
