(Newser) – About 100 escaped goats have munched on manicured lawns in Idaho's capital city before being rounded up and hauled away, the AP reports. Multiple news outlets captured the goats calmly eating grass and shrubs in a Boise neighborhood Friday morning before a trailer arrived amid applause from neighborhood residents.
