    Goats were seen running down the streets of Issaquah -- a city about 22 miles east of Seattle -- and recorded by someone driving by. 

    Mark Svendsen, who gave KIRO 7 permission to use the video, posted this description on YouTube:

    Our homeowner association hires the goats for clearing vegetation between houses and in buffer zones next to the forest. The goats were scheduled to depart the next morning and had eaten most of the plants in their enclosure. The fresh plants across the street must have been too tempting, and they broke through their fencing into the Issaquah Highlands neighborhood.

    It took several hours and a lot of help from the community to get the various groups of the herd back together. Many were collected and temporarily put into the fenced dog park down the hill. Others were coaxed back into their enclosure. Eventually, all goats were accounted for and reunited.
