Goats on Bunker Hill -- another Monday in downtown L.A.
The denizens of the Bunker Hill high-rises can be excused from doing a double-take this morning as some new workers joined them in downtown Los Angeles. These workers are goats -- 100 of the bearded variety. The Community Redevelopment Agency brought the animals in the to chew on weeds and brush on a steep portion of Angels Knoll.
The Times' Bob Pool was there and will have a full report soon. But Bob says people came out of the subway exit at 4th and Hill to a sea of goats on the hill above. Many took out their cellphone cameras and snapped away.
Vicky Bravo, a student who lives near downtown Los Angeles, told Bob she intended to e-mail her photos around to friends. "My friends won't believe it unless they see it," she said.
Someone even suggested turning on the "Sound of Music" soundtrack.
The goats are from Corona and will stay in downtown overnight, with a herdsman and private security, according to the CRA.
