Boston is enlisting the aid of some four-legged helpers to combat the city's nastiest weed problems. Here's more on how this ground-level idea came about. They're out to make Boston a nicer place to live, one chomp at a time. "We actually have goats right now at this very moment eating poison ivy and hopefully this will open up this space to be more accessible green area," says Chris Cook, interim parks commissioner. "Goat-scaping" is underway by the Neponset River in Hyde Park. It's an area city maintenance gangs and volunteers can't access because it's overrun by poison ivy. Apparently a delicacy for the four goats who just arrived there. "This goat-scaping will go on eight weeks," says WCVB Reporter Kelley Tuthill. "As you can see, they have a lot of work to do. Look all around you. The three leaves, that means poison ivy." Grant money will cover the $3,000 cost. Teens on the Hyde Park Green team helped convince the mayor it was a good ideas. "We proposed our idea of having goats and he thought it was pretty cool because it was the first time in Boston," says Jolanda Douyon of the Hyde Park Green Team. The Green team will help care for the four-legged helpers during their stay at the West Street Urban Wild. "The goat-scaping company will fence in a half-acre at a time with an electrified fence that is solar powered," says Patricia Alvarez of the Southwest Boston Community Development Corporation. "It's not harmful to humans. It's really meant to keep coyotes out and goats in." The city says it's fine for the public to view the goats but don't pet them. They are covered in poison ivy oils. According to the Boston Globe, the $2,800 cost to rent the goats is being covered by grants.
