Chicago Airport Hires Goats. For Real.

Dianne Hoskins Facebook

This is without a doubt one of the strangest things I’ve ever heard yet it’s very cool at the same time.Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport is enlisting the help of goats to do their landscaping.

A herd of about 25 goats will be arriving as early as next month to munch away weeds and pesky plants on about 120 acres of airport-owned land. They will be providing “sustainable vegetation management grazing services,” as part of a two-year, $100,000 contract with the company that owns the animals.

 

Apparently, the land they will be grazing is hard to get to with traditional landscaping equipment.

 

When you think about it, it’s really not a bad idea after all!
