Dozens of goats released in New York park to eat weeds

Two dozen goats from a New York state farm have been released on a city outing on Wednesday to much on invasive weeds in Manhattan’s Riverside Park.

Spectators crowded at the sidelines and counted down as the goats were herded in a ceremonial ‘Running of the Goats’ to begin their task as natural weed whackers.
