The City of West Sacramento released "GoatCam" video on April 18, 2019. The video shows goats interacting and going about their business along the River Walk Trail.

The herd of goats-for-hire hard at work chewing weeds to reduce fire danger are a familiar sight in West Sacramento – and the city on Friday showed the operation from the goat’s point of view.

The “goatcam” video released Thursday on the city’s Facebook page shows the bucolic scene along the River Walk Trail, with the Tower Bridge in the background. The goat doing the camera work doesn’t cause much of a stir among the team as it trots along, prompting only a few curious glances.

The herd of about 400 goats are on the job through May in high-growth areas of West Sacramento that are hard to reach, such as the Barge Canal, Clarksburg Branch Line Trail, along the riverfront near The Barn, the Broderick Boat Ramp and the bridge, according to the city’s website.

The city says Blue Tent Farms in Red Bluff has provided the “environmentally friendly” rental goats since 2014.
