PHOTOS: Escaped goats chow down on lawns in residential Boise neighborhood

About 100 escaped goats have munched on manicured lawns in Idaho's capital city before being rounded up and hauled away.


Multiple news outlets captured the goats calmly eating grass and shrubs in a Boise neighborhood Friday morning before a trailer arrived applause from neighborhood residents.


It's not clear where the goats came from or how they got loose.

Goats are sometimes let loose in the nearby Boise foothills to eat wild plants and reduce wildfire threats.

About an hour and a half after they showed up a large truck arrived from We Rent Goats. and they were able to herd the animals up a ramp and into the truck.

Reporters covering the incident on Friday said a lot of the goats had tags in their ears so they should be able to figure out where their home is located.
