I suspect there is much more to this particular story than this article lets on.  For example, where in California?

So, free goat meat?

I admit, Goat Simulator was funny especially in how glitchy it was, but the MMO edition is just rehashing the same basic joke.

California. All of it.

Damn, a whole armada of cloven hoofed vegetation destroyers! Awesome!

Where the hell is this? Looks pretty upscale, the owner will be pissed, but the landscapers will love it!

Ah... The majestic California beach goat.

If they only had ARs in California, those libs could have taken care of the problem themselves, like Real 'Muricans do to feral pigs in the south!

Looks like there is an overgrown area near these houses where the owner hires a herd of goats to graze on for a few days a year (this is a real thing I've heard of before) and they got loose somehow.  Probably not really related to the virus.

The Bay Area somewhere, maybe in SF. But he says the goats come around 3 days per year to clear grass off a hill behind his home.

We had a herd of goats out in my county for like a week a number of years ago.  I think they set up a temporary electric fence and let the goats stay for a week.  I think it cost $20,000.  Works really well.

Now, if you let them free for an afternoon in a place with fancy plants you may not be happy with the results.

I was thinking something similar. He was probably thinking, "Finally! My purpose in life!"

He'll be dreaming of this day for a long time.

I have heard before from some of my friends that live in the Sacramento / Folsom-ish area that some towns have goats that they use for weed / brush control, if they get out they roam around a bit and just eat through whatever they find, including people's gardens (the context where I learned about them).

There's a jamaican place in town that serves a delicious curried goat with callaloo and plantains.  Urgh.

Haven't been in a long while.  I'll have to check and see if they're open for takeout.

I keep goats on my property for weed control. Been tempted to rent them out, but things like this stop me. I don't want to chase them down because someone doesn't contain them properly. They're fun to have around, though.

Moonlite Bar-B-Q Inn - Kentucky

Pre-plague you could ordered cans of bbq mutton from them but, they have since removed it from their site.
 
2020-05-13 12:44:05 PM  
This is a good thing.  The goats are clearing underbrush and chopping back at vegetation that honestly, consumes way too much water in that arid environment.

I bet the town is not destroyed by a wildfire for at least the next several weeks.

Curried goat is fantastic. There was an Indian place near the NY-Pa border (The World Diner) that made a version that was so good that I would drive the 74 miles each way to eat it at least once per month for years until they closed.

Except for a couple stragglers, the goats are moving without eating. I suspect those goats are being herded by someone off camera. Probably being used for brush control as several have mentioned above.

If someone told you six months ago that you'd be in front of your house/dwelling with crossbow in hand waiting for a herd of out of control goats right now, you'd have called the cops on a madman around.

/or shot him

Just rewatched with volume on
They were being herded. There is even a herding dog seen at the end.

Not a tasty invasion, I'm afraid.

I have seen videos of park services using goats to clear out poison ivy and kudzu in the National Cemetery. They are a lot more proficient and less hazardous than using dangerous chemicals.

About 200 Goats Escape, Roam the Streets of East San Jose
Terry Roelands said the hill behind his home caught on fire about 15 years ago and since then, they use goats a few times a year to clear the brush.

On Tuesday evening, one of the goats was eating flowers over a fence and somehow tapped one of the electric fences, causing it and others to break the boards on the fence, Roelands said.

This allowed about 200 goats to escape through a backyard and out onto the streets.
A rancher got the goats back onto the ranchlands in about five minutes, Roelands said.

Yep, rented mowing goats is a pretty common thing.

I read that last past as in a place with fancy pants and was momentarily disturbed.

I always put on my fancy pants when a GOAT is coming by.

The wildlife was here first. It's not an invasion. More like Messicans taking back El Norte one barrio at a time.

Goats are great. They produce milk, meat, leather, wool, and bone much cheaper than cattle and they are playful and amusing. They are the all-purpose animal, the Swiss Army Knife of pets and livestock.
 
2020-05-13 1:50:27 PM  
Goat is tasty but stringier than lamb. Gets stuck between my teeth. Lamb is tasty also, but stringier than beef. Ditto. All told, something that as a green and a global warming believer, I favour, although I do think beef makes better vindaloo on the whole.
