Ever wondered what 800 goats charging downhill looks like? Watch this stampede and see

Even if you never have wondered what what 800 goats charging downhill looks like, this video is still pretty amazing. This annual event in Berkeley has finally been caught on camera.

One California institution employs a unique method of lawncare on campus.

Every June, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory near UC Berkeley uses a herd of goats – numbering in the hundreds – to graze on lawns to reduce risk of fire.

Video caught this year’s flock of 800 goats hurtling down a hillside as workers stopped traffic to let the animals pass.

The Daily Californian spoke with Thomas Price, maintenance supervisor for the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, who called the goats a ‘crowd pleaser.’

The goats are provided by a local family business, Goats R Us, which also sends a herder to manage the flock.

Whoever thought of this idea did a very good job.
