Chicago’s airport uses goats

Needed: 30 goats and 1 herder
Required by: Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport (USA)
Now why would an airport require goats? The administrative staff at the O’Hare Airport has decided to use goats to chomp on the grass and weeds in areas where it is difficult to get a lawn mower to do the job. This isn’t the first airport in the United States to use such a technique. The airports in San Francisco and Atlanta also are using this technique. Two Internet companies many of you might be familiar with, Google (see image) and Yahoo, sometimes also use goats to mow the lawns in their campuses.
