BREVARD COUNTY • TITUSVILLE, FLORIDA – Much like the fable “Three Billy Goats Gruff” begins, 0nce upon a time there were 24 billy goats, who went up a hillside to make themselves fat.

The hillside, in this case, is at Imperial Estates Elementary, and these goats have an important mission ahead of them… to clean up the retention basin near the student basketball court, an area of unsafe terrain even for the most skilled of lawn care experts.

The idea of using goats to clear the overgrown area came from none other than a group of elementary schoolers, as an innovative and cost-effective solution to taming an environmental situation which poses a hazard to human crews, teachers, staff and students.

The goats have been provided by Rent-a-Ruminant, a company that specializes in eco-friendly, green and sustainable vegetation management.

The goats will stay on school property until the job is done, which is anticipated to take a couple of weeks. Rent-a-Ruminant staff remain on-site 24/7 to care for the goats, which are corralled in trailers at night.

Instead of encountering a troll on their grass-eating journey, Imperial’s newest kids were met with lots of paparazzi and fanfare their first day on the job.
