- Story Text: Two dozen goats were brought to Riverside Park in New York City to help remove an invasive plant species by grazing on Wednesday (July 14).
The video showed a herd of goats released to begin their weed-grazing journey.
The project was organized by Riverside Park Conservancy and began in 2019.
"Since goats are naturally effective weed whackers, putting than to work in Gotham is like treating them to an all-you-can-eat buffet. It's hearty for the goats and good for the environment," a Riverside Park Conservancy press release said.
