The New Urban Workforce

September 9, 2008

The second-largest city in the U.S. is going to the goats. This week, a Los Angeles city agency dispatched one hundred South African Boer goats to clean up a weed-covered hillside plot in downtown for future development. Their ruminative presence has already created a stir among the area’s high-rise office workers and residents.

The goats are reportedly receiving offers for future, more high-profile gigs at places like Descanso Gardens and Huntington Library and as far away as the Chateau de Versailles.
