An Idaho neighborhood had quite the site when residents found that there were around one-hundred and eighteen goats roaming around their lawns.
The goats were going after flower beds, leaves and even grass as they moved from yard to yard in the neighborhood.
The goats belong to a company that's called We Rent Goats. They basically rent out these goats to landowners who need to mow a large amount of land. They also have insurance on the animals, for reasons like this and ones that are similar to it. According to NBC news, Mike Journee, a Boise city government spokesman, mentioned that this will come in handy as the company will be following up with people who's yard was damaged.
They actually escaped in a less original manner than what everyone might think. They just so happened to want more food and then ended up breaking several wooden slats of a fence, which obviously allowed them to run out the enclosed area. At that time, they were located near Ada County Highway District retention pond.

The neighborhood ended up working together to force the goats into one yard and then wait for the company to have some representatives show up and herd the goats in a truck. They arrived pretty quickly with only a two-hour difference between the initial calls and arrival.
Despite what many might be thinking, the goats were not acting like much of a problem. Yes, they destroyed property, but most people were just curious as to what was happening. Some people even brought their kids to see the little show that was being put on.
A site like this is really once in a lifetime, and definitely a little strange. Other than that, it's also pretty funny and actually does kind of make a person want the same incident to happen to them simply because it makes for a great story to tell people.
