Goats used to curb vegetation near North Idaho College

Twenty-five goats are being used to clear off vegetation on the east side of the Spokane River between the old sawmill site and the Harbor Center. The goats will be barricaded inside an enclosed pen for the next two weeks. People are asked to not feed the goats so they will do their jobs.

The vegetation clearing project is being sponsored by the city of Coeur d’Alene. The city has been successful in using the goats in the past to clear areas of vegetation without the use of chemicals. Pictured are a few of goats after they were released into their enclosed area Tuesday, Oct. 9.
