Goats and Guard Dog in the Wildlife Area
If you see goats and their guard dog on the Wildlife Area don’t be surprised. Yolo Bypass Wildlife Area is working with the rice farmer on an experiment to use goats as an effective cost saving way to maintain roadways and reduce invasive weeds. The goats are required to be contained in a fenced area at all times. A guard dog is on duty to keep them safe. Maintain distance and do not disturb them – they’re working!
