MADISON (WKOW) – Edgewood College in Madison is hoping a herd of goats will help the school control its invasive plants on campus.
The college will let a small herd of goats loose in a contained area next week and let them munch on the European Buckthorn and Honeysuckle.
A company called Green Goats will install an electric mesh fence on campus to contain the herd while the goats are eating the plants. Edgewood says the goats are expected to remain on campus 10 to 14 days.
Edgewood is a liberal arts Catholic college with about 3,000 undergraduate and graduate students.
