Goat Stage Fright at Congressional Cemetery

(Douglas Graham/CQ Roll Call)

"They were a little intimidated by it."

— Brian Knox, supervising forester for Eco-Goats, referring to the reaction of his herd of grazers to the dozens of onlookers and press people at Congressional Cemetery this morning. The cemetery has employed Eco-Goats to graze the invasive species that choke the perimeter of the historic grounds.
