Navy uses goats to keep Indian Island trimmed




PORT ANGELES — Instead of week-whackers, the Navy is using a herd of goats to control vegetation on Indian Island, the island near Port Townsend where munitions are stored and loaded on ships.

The Peninsula Daily News reports more than 100 goats from Rent-A-Ruminant of Vashon Island went to work a few weeks ago and will be munching for the Navy until mid-June.
