Meet Keene’s newest hires: goats

By Meghan Foley Sentinel Staff

             At one time, many sheep roamed Keene’s closed landfill with the task of keeping the grass short and shrubbery in check.

The sheep weren’t owned by the city; rather, they were on loan from a local shepherd. Eventually, the program fizzled and the city turned to man-made equipment for the work. But this summer, public works officials have gone back to the animal approach — this time with goats.
