A herd of five hundred hungry, mangy animals saved a landmark near Los Angeles from a fire, according to the website of The Guardian.
The library was threatened by a fire that prompted evacuations throughout the state of California.
In May, the management of the complex prudently hired 500 animals at 805 Goats to clear more than 5 acres of the surrounding area of flammable shrubs planted earlier as a preventative measure.
The herd ate the shrubbery, thereby creating a gap that slowed the spread of the flames and gave firefighters extra time to respond.
The contractors included animals named Vincent van Goat, Selena Goatmez, and Goatzart. They helped preserve exhibits, including an airplane that was Air Force One under Reagan and a fragment of the Berlin Wall.
