Lynchburg adds goats to groundskeeping staff

According to this delightful article ("Goats helping to clear overgrown cemetery," 3/27/04) in the Lynchburg paper, city workers have used a gang of goats to clear the ground in a carefully-defined area of a city cemetery, with the result that an old boundary wall but no tombstones have been uncovered.

The article does not have any comment from the local chapter of PETA, particularly on whether the requirement that one goat wear an orange shirt in the manner of a common inmate was offensive to the goat's self-esteem, or that the placement of the goats has been offensive to the resident deer population.
