A group of goats grazes as part of Steel City Grazers, another local company that offered goat landscaping services but has since closed.

Ten goats and a donkey that were helping to clear vines and weeds in a Pittsburgh park were quickly corralled after they got loose from their enclosure.

An Allegheny County 911 supervisor tells the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review the animals were reported loose in the city's Brighton Heights neighborhood early Tuesday. They were rounded up, and no damage to any property was reported.

The city sometimes uses goats as a form of environmentally friendly landscaping and to reach steep slopes that are hard to access

A post on the Allegheny GoatScape Facebook page indicates the goats had been in the park for about a week helping to clear vegetation.
