They get Boston's goats

Boston Magazine reports the Southwest Boston Community Development Corporation is renting goats to chow down on all the poison ivy infesting an urban wilds at West and Austin streets in Hyde Park. If the goats are allowed to roam at all, they'll love it, because not only is there an all-they-can-eat buffet, the site is home to one of the world's largest outcroppings of Roxbury Puddingstone.

Hyde Park


Shots fired, shotspotter on, 911, what's goin on? Tires squeel, bullets fly, oh God I hear a baby cry! Sirens wail, an old woman frail... falls down...her heart begins to fail. Police, ambulances, a man, blood on his face, will they live? Maybe... God's grace. Curious neighbors gather round, some just stare at the ground. In some houses lights go out. Now I hear a young man shout "He shot my brother! I'll find him quick!"...The anger in his face, makes me sick.Neighborhoods: BostonDorchesterHyde ParkJamaica PlainMattapanMission HillRoxburySouth BostonSouth EndWest RoxburyFree tagging: crimeGunspoliceTopics: CrimeRelationships
