Santa Barbara needs new fire abatement contractors

LA County has hired them. San Diego has hired them. The Getty Museum has hired them.

GOATS.
...“Goats herd better. They eat the problem and can work all day, until sunset. They don’t get poison ivy; they eat it,” according to Hugh Bunten, who with his wife, Sarah, owns Nanny & Billy’s vegetation management company of Lakeview, Ore. “By using goats, raking, hauling and dumping debris is not required, which saves money,” continues Hugh Bunten pointing out several benefits of the goat method of weed abatement.

However, one of Caltrans’ hired “contractors,” Toby, the goat, was complaining and took the day off. “Toby is having a bad day. He really preferred his previous job eating on the Getty Museum’s hillside. He’s one of our more picky eaters,” says Hugh Bunten. -
