High on a hill was a lonely goatherd…


Lay ee odl lay ee odl lay hee hoo*, indeed.

I’m not sure if these goats are used to clear property, but residents rounded up a herd of goats Thursday that wandered into the Mountaingate (Sepulveda Pass) area.

A homeowner saw the goats in the street and asked some nearby workers to help.

The residents and workers tied the goats — about 12 of them — to trees. They plan to watch after the animals until the owner arrives.

“I just watch over them with my golf club,” said resident Kioko Morganstern. “If a coyote comes, or whatever, I’ll protect them. I will watch them, for tonight.”

Animal control officials said they could not guarantee when somebody would arrive to get the goats.

  • Actually in SF along some of the more grassier parts of the city (like near Glen Park and Laguna Honda Hospital) I’ve seen goats put to work to clear off dead brush. It’s pretty neat to watch.

  • your blog topics are so diverse. hee hoo! i’ll try to call you sometime this weekend. call me if i forget. :)

  • That’s okay about putting the yodelling in my head. I return the favor in kind:

    Sunny day
    Sweepin’ the clouds away
    On my way to where the air is sweet
    Can you tell me how to get
    How to get to Sesame Street…

    You’re welcome.

  • I love goats…trouble is, there is never one around when you need one.

  • That is funny! And I can definitely think of worse songs to have stuck in the head. Our Relay For Life is this weekend. The theme is Over the Rainbow… I think you KNOW where I’m going.
