The Goats of Downtown L.A.

There is a herd of goats chomping on some brush in Downtown Los Angeles. For the next couple of weeks, these goats will be at work in the heart of the downtown area. The herd of 100 goats has been hired by the Los Angeles Community Redevelopment Agency to clear away thick weeds on a hillside swath of land at the corner of 4th and Hill streets. Their previous assignment was clearing brush in a the foothills above Duarte in preparation for fire season this fall. Passing workers exiting from a subway station stop to take a look at a sight you don't see everyday in the city.
