Goats Could Help Reduce Wildfire Risk in East County

Posted: Updated:
Fire officials unveiled a new, innovative way to reduce the danger of wildfires in the East County Saturday.

The first-ever Running of the Goats took place in Crest. Some 250 goats were introduced into a 150-acre area to help manage vegetation.

Fire officials said it is a practical way to reduce wildfire fuel.

The project is funded through a grant from the U.S. Forest Service and is the largest project of its kind in the state.
