The City of Paso Robles is turning hungry animals loose in the Salinas Riverbed to reduce the wildfire risk. Goats will be grazing over the next month or so. They’re starting from the north and going south, clearing two to three acres a day. On Tuesday, there were upwards of 100 goats munching away at the overgrown, fire-ready grasses in the fire-prone hot spot of the Salinas Riverbed. … The herd is also chewing through poison hemlock and other weeds, creating fuel breaks through which wildfires are less likely to burn.
