DOUGLAS COUNTY, Colo. — Goats were put to work Saturday south of metro Denver.

They do a great job of helping reduce the risk of damage from wildfires … by eating potential wildfire fuel in places that are near neighborhoods.

It’s an important fire mitigation job and it was happening in the Castle Pines area south of Denver Saturday.

You’re invited to see them to their job at the “Ready, Set, Goat” event in the Pine Ridge subdivision from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, June 23.
