    Homeowners in Boise, Idaho, woke up to a strange scene on Friday when they noticed at roughly 7 a.m. local time that some 100 goats were roaming throughout the neighborhood.

    Though where the goats came from was a mystery to many, there was no doubt that they arrived on the scene with an appetite. Say goodbye to those perfectly mowed lawns, lush flowerbeds and vine-filled trees, Boise residents!

    ​According to local news station KTVB, the herd of hungry kids was allowed to stay in the neighborhood until 8 a.m. when animal control arrived with a single truck. After realizing they'd severely underestimated the number of animals, officials enlisted the help of We Rent Goats, a company that rents out goat herds for clearing weeds and the like, to round up the remaining billies and nannies.

    ​KTVB later reported that the lawn terrorizers had been grazing at a nearby area when they somehow escaped their enclosure and made their way to the neighborhood. It's unclear who owns the goats.
