Cleveland cuts air & noise pollution with sheep & goats

With the help of the grassroots organization Urban Shepherds, the Greater Cleveland Regional Transit Authority (GCRTA) is in preliminary planning for replacing gas guzzling lawn mowers with lambs and goats at a handful of sites.

Note from Storm: I’d love to see other cities behave as intelligently as Cleveland is with this program. In one fell swoop, they reduce air pollution, reduce their carbon footprint, reduce noise pollution, increase the charm of neighborhoods, and turn waste (grass) into wool, milk, cheese, and meat, thus boosting their local agricultural economy.

UPDATE: This experiment has been so successful in Cleveland, that they expanded the program in June of 2015.
