Wascana Centre Unveils Goat-Brand Herbicide

If you’re in the vicinity of Wascana Hill in the eastern section of Wascana Centre near the Science Centre in the next few days and happen to spot a herd of 40 goats traipsing around don’t freak out. The herd’s been brought in to do some old-fashioned weed control by grazing on the caragana that grows wild there and interferes with the ability of prairie grasses and other flora to survive in what’s known as the Habitat Conservation Area.

The goats were released on Friday and will remain until Monday. This afternoon between 1-3 p.m. there will be a special opportunity for the public to see the goats in action. Representatives from Friends of Wascana Marsh will be there to explain what the goats are up to.

  1. Well, they can’t eat at the Novia, so they gotta eat somewhere.

    This is an ode to recently-departed Regina, a city with no memory, but a bit of a hard-on for animal pictures on the Internet.

    If I was a lonely, scuzzy old working man, slinging carpets or television sets at the mall, where would I go in Regina downtown for a semi-healthy quiet dinner? Nowhere! Baah!

  2. #2. True, that, Ron. One kills bugs, the other, other plants. Is it a simple chemical difference?

  3. #4 I don’t know if it is a simple chemmy difference.
    Dish soap & regular vinegar mixed, utilized with a spray “bottle”, sure pisses off most insects.
    Add yer favorite hot sauce.. that may ward off bears too.
