Oregon will not be renewing a scheme which uses goats to eat invasive species due to rising costs and complaints over the animals' odour.

Salem, the state capital, hired a herd of 75 goats to munch their way through plants like Armenian blackberry in the city's largest park.

But costs came to more than five times the city would have spent on human landscapers, a report found.

The goats also ate native plants among the invasive species, the report added.

The six-week pilot programme ended last November and there are no plans to renew it, city officials said.

Aside from their cost, the goats left behind a "heavily fertilized area", the city's public works operations manager Mark Becktel told the Statesman Journal.

The park was also said to have a "barnyard aroma" due to the goats' presence.

According to the report presented Monday, the total cost to the city for using the nannies and billies, which were "universally welcomed by park users as a pleasant pastoral addition to the scenery," was $20,719. Ruminate on that, if you will.

...

The city also had to deal with what the goats left behind, which was a "heavily fertilized area," said Mark Becktel, public works operations manager for the city of Salem. "If you know what I mean."

Had the city alternatively used a city parks maintenance operator for 32 hours, it could have achieved nearly the same results for $3,370. Since the park area is relatively flat, it can be mowed using a Bobcat unit with a mowing attachment. The site would still require a small inmate crew to clear vegetation from around trees and from tight corners.

Five times more? More trouble than they're worth I guess.

Shit happens. The older you get, the more often shit happens. So you have to try not to give a shit even when you do. Because, if you give too many shits, you've created your own shit creek and there's no way out other than swimming through the shit. Oh, and fuck.
