About 100 escaped goats munched on manicured lawns in Idaho's capital city before being rounded up and hauled away this morning.

Multiple news outlets captured the goats calmly eating grass and shrubs in a Boise neighbourhood before a trailer arrived amid applause from neighbourhood residents.

The goats had been corralled near a local retention pond to eat weeds and another overgrowth, but — perhaps noticing the grass was greener next door — broke through a wooden fence to roam the neighbourhood.

Kim and Matt Gabica own the animals as part of their business called We Rent Goats. They gathered the docile herd and said all 118 of the goats were accounted for.

Goats are sometimes let loose in the nearby Boise foothills to eat wild plants and reduce wildfire threats.
