A herd of goats will be gobbling up vegetation, including noxious weeds, along Cheyenne's Crow Creek over the next two weeks, the city announced Wednesday.

The four-legged weed eaters were relocated to Crow Creek earlier this week after spending two weeks eating vegetation along Dry Creek.

The goats are funded through the fifth penny sales tax.
