Good News Friday: Only you can prevent wildfires, and goats can help.

Yoga isn't the only thing goats are in the news for lately.

These benevolent bovidae's are now on fire prevention duty in California. Their task is to do what goats do best, eat!

A study from November of 2019  showed that one of the contributors to wildfires is non-native grasses, which are spreading more easily due to climate change. These non-native grasses make wildfires two to three times more likely.

Having a staff dedicated to mitigating weed growth along the hillside of southern California is not only economically nonviable but ineffective and difficult.

Have you ever seen a goat navigate a hillside? They can do things people can't. Not only are they experts at traversing technical terrain, but they also prefer to snack on the non-native grasses. Preventing wildfire two-fold just by doing what a goat does naturally.

Anaheim has renewed a contract with Environmental Land Management to keep goats munching on fire-fuel year round, NPR reported. 400 goats began grazing in Deer Canyon Park in July 2019 and the city plans to keep them around, but it's not just Anaheim! It's become a widespread practice after a crew of 500 volunteer fire fighting goats helped save the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library from the Easy Fire.

The key take-away; despite their historical superstitious ties to the devil and evil, these lovely animals are helping to prevent hell on earth as we know it. One bite at a time.

  • Maybe some people like posting comments with Facebook, but I feel like there’s a worry about the activity being posted to your feed. With Disqus, they don’t have to worry about that and moderation is really good for the blogger.

  • Interesting comments in here. As a commenter and reader, I quite like Disqus. It’s a single profile that I’ve been using across the major social and marketing blogs that I visit and it seems to be used by them, so 더온카지노

  • I agree, Kristi. I rarely read blogs that don’t have comments. When I have time to read, I want to do so in a community where I can interact with the writer and other readers.
    This has been an evergreen question to me. Any system I tried hasn’t been perfect, most are frustrating. I like owning my comments but Wordpress hasn’t managed to improve their comment system. I can’t figure it out! Commenting is what makes blogging so awesome: Why does Wordpress keep tweaking the dashboard but they’ve never got around to improving the commenting functionality!?
