Good idea or baaa-d idea? Sheep and goats considered to mow Detroit parks

DETROIT - Grazing on overgrown lots and parks?

It's an unusual idea getting some legs in Detroit. Can you envision goats and sheep serving as city lawn mowers?

Tate admits he thought the idea was weird at first and then he discovered there are pilot grazing programs in other cities across the country.
