A new spin on the sheep in the meadow

Submitted
Interesting concept - and Lord knows there's a ton of grass and brush near all the runways at Hartsfield, especially that new southernmost runway - but I'd hate to think of the consequences if a sheep or goat somehow got out of the containment area and wandered into the path of a 777.

Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport is testing using the animals as a low-cost solution to keep vegetation on airport property under control. O'Hare Airport is attempting to do the same thing.

O'Hare airport is looking for a few good goats

In a hard to mow area, Chicago put out a bid for someone to supply goats to do the trimming. Right outside the fence at O'Hare International Airport. The bid also calls for a goat herder.
