If you're walking through a Minnesota park and you come across a herd of goats, just let them be. They're probably hard at work, busting their (gr)asses to keep the area tidy.

It's an eco-friendly way to combat buckthorn, garlic mustard and other invasive plants.

Goat Dispatch – a company in Faribault that hires out the animals – has already taken some to Minnetonka's Purgatory Park, Hudson and other areas. There's also talk of bringing some to work in Minneapolis.
