ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI) - St. Louis already allows backyard chickens, but how about goats?

Writing on his blog, Mayor Francis Slay says the city will ask for aldermanic permission to allow goats to do some mowing on city property. Goats and llamas are already in use at the Ohare Airport in Chicago.

Mayor Slay says his office fields several requests a week from residents asking about using goats to tend to their lawns.
