The goats are in town, the contractor delivered about 1,400 on Friday, May 3rd. They were placed on several public works properties. They are expected to reach the Pendleton Levee in town beginning the week of May 20th. They will be placed at the west end near Trailhead Park, and work east along the River Parkway.
Folks are welcome to view the goats. We ask folks to use extra caution in walking their dogs in the vicinity of the goats – their pets need to be leashed – as the goats are protected by a guard dog(s) within the electric fence pens. The electric fences are also signed and typically off during the day when folks are walking the levee.
If there are issues with the goats, like getting out of the pen area, or a mass escape, city staff can be reached at 541.276.3078 or 541.966.0202 during work hours.
If after work hours or on weekends, please contact dispatch 541.966.3651.
