KTVB is reporting the goats had been grazing nearby when they somehow escaped and set off on a snacking tour of the neighborhood.

At around 7 a.m., the goats descended upon Summerwind Drive and began wandering through yards and chomping up yards and gardens, witnesses told KTVB.

Animal Control initially responded with a lone truck but officials quickly realized they were in over their heads.

And by 9:00 a.m., the party was over.

The goats, fittingly, belong to a company called "We Rent Goats", a unique business proposition if I've ever heard one, and have now been collected from the Boise suburb. The company rents goats to remove noxious weeds from fields, acreage, pastures and various other open spaces, their website says.

Wow. Who needs landscapers when you can just rent a goat? "I knew back in OR that there were companies that rented out goats, so I thought that this was the same situation".

And a third person added: "I want them released in my neighborhood next!"

Didn't think we could love a goat any more.

"I went insane, and I came outside", she said. They said all 118 animals are safe and accounted for. We Rent Goats eventually came to the rescue with a larger vehicle and shepherded the goats out of the neighborhood.

"I'm probably going to tell them that I saw the most wild thing ever", he said.
