The grass at Chicago O'Hare airport needs trimming, and officials are planning to outsource the job to goats.
CHICAGO, IL (Catholic Online) - Rather than use humans, the Chicago Department of Aviation has put out a call seeking goats and a goat herder to trim the airport's grass.
The request is seeking 30 goats to geat grass in one area and weeds in another, which is admittedly difficult to service.
The area to be services is away from the runways and separated by a fence, so the goats should pose no trouble for aircraft.
The goats will also produce less pollution, but more fertilizer for the grassy area.
