Dozens of apparently hungry goats mysteriously showed up in a west Boise, Idaho neighborhood Friday morning, and promptly began devouring residents’ lawns and shrubs.

According to an Ada County dispatch supervisor, a call came in about 7 a.m. local time regarding several dozen goats in the neighborhood of Sunnybrook and Summerwind Drives, near the intersection of Five and Ustick Roads.

Animal Control officers initially responded to the scene, but soon found that there were too many goats to handle. A company called We Rent Goats wa called in to round up the animals.

Initial reports say the goats were grazing in a nearby field and somehow got loose.
