Oregon city fires its grounds-keeping goats with ‘barnyard aroma’

The 75 billy and nanny goats were supposed to eat Armenian blackberry and English ivy and other invasive plants choking native vegetation across the 9.1-acre Minto-Brown Island Park, the city’s largest, in a pilot program last fall.
