I first saw them many years ago on the local news. They were being featured after they did “work” for the SFO runway. Apparently, there are some spots in the runway, where workmen are not allowed and for some reason, they can get access.
I never paid any more attention to it. A couple of years later as I was a few yards from home, I hit a little traffic in this residential road. I noticed the people stopped their cars in the middle of the road to watch them do their work on the hillside. This particular hillside is a little steep that man cannot do the job. I thought that was funny that they get tapped to do the job. The following day, just as I was driving past that same spot, I saw their “ride”. A trailer with the words GOATS R US was parked on the side of the road.
Another year past and I was expecting to see them do their usual work of the hillside. But they were nowhere to be found. One weekend my hubs and I did our usual walk/photo shoot of our fave regional park, we saw them. They are now doing this work for the park for fire prevention purposes, as you know California has added fire as the fifth season of the year. And because I had come here to shoot and walk, I had my camera with me. Below are the shots I took from that walk. Taken at Point Pinole Regional Shoreline.
This spring I saw them in the neighboring city clearing hillside brush in the residential area again. I guess there will be no dearth of work to be done by these handsome beasts.
Is there something similar to this in your world? I would like to know. Thanks.
