“The person will be really involved in creating opportunities for Edmontonians to come and check out our herd,” Shannon Wagner of Edmonton’s Operations, Program Delivery & Partnerships Program told CTV News Channel on Tuesday.

According to the City, these billies have been trained to eat certain weed species. Last year, they chowed down on Canada thistle, leafy spurge, common tansy, common burdock, yellow toadflax and the odd dandelion at Rundle Park.

The aim of the pilot project is to combat the weeds while limiting herbicide use.

Goat stomachs are so acidic they actually destroy seeds and prevent seed distribution, the city said on its website. They can also digest weeds that would be toxic to other livestock. As a bonus, the goat poop acts as a fertilizer.

The City said on its website that applicants should have a degree in horticulture, forestry, parks, recreation, or an environmental discipline, plus experience in forestry and gardening and a valid driver's licence.

There is one more qualification.

“Enjoying goats is part of the job,” Wagner said.
