Lets goat Buffalo.
Yes, you read that correctly.
A team of goats took on a very important assignment.
They have been deployed to Silo City to eliminate invasive mugworts.
With their unique digestive systems, they breakdown seeds and slow the regrowth of those invasive plants.
Six goats will be penned in a safe enclosure where they will graze until July 17.
"These goats are not only adorable, they are also important," said Nancy Smith, Western New York Land Conservancy executive director. "They are tipping the balance toward a more diverse ecosystem. The result will be beauty and color in the landscape, new homes for butterflies, improved water quality, and a stronger web of life."
The goats were sponsored by the Western New York Land Conservancy as part of its effort to develop the Riverline in Buffalo's downtown.
