Goats helping Boston clear weeds

BOSTON, Mass. --- Officials in Boston are enlisting the aid of four goats to combat the city's nastiest weed problems which includes a large amount of poison ivy. 

Teenagers helped convince the mayor to invest in goatscaping.

"We proposed our idea of having goats and he thought it was pretty cool since it was the first time in Boston," said Hyde Park Green Team member Jolanda Douyon.

The city says it's fine for the public to view the goats but strongly advise that no one pet them as they are covered in poison ivy oils. 

The price tag to rent the goats is $2,800.
