In Tachikawa, a suburb of Tokyo, a local resident spotted herd of goats peacefully grazing near the Japanese IKEA.

Enclosed in an aviary, they perform an important job work — nibbling the grass around the hypermarket building so that it does not grow too high.

Nearby the goat's shed stands a sign with the wording, "Please do not disturb us from doing our work, we have families to feed."
On the neighboring stalls hang photos with the names of these unusual "employees."
