Seattle-Tacoma International Airport goes green with goats

This morning, (Friday, August 29), the folks at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport (SEA) conducted a little test.

In an effort to rid the airport’s property of invasive plants, airport officials invited a herd of goats (and three sheep) over for lunch. No need to cook up anything special: the herd was happy eat its way through Scotch broom and other invasive plant species.

The Port of Seattle, which operates the airport, is testing this environmentally friendly way to protect and improve its property. The goats are owned by a local business, Goat Trimmers, which puts rescued sheep and goats to work. Sounds like a perfect match!
