It wasnít a typical Friday morning in Boise, Idaho.

Residents of a suburb outside the city woke up to a herd of around 100 goats roaming their streets at will, moving house to house and eating countless yardsí landscapes along the way, according to KTVB.

The goats were first spotted on their own around 7 a.m., KTVB reports. They were free until their owners, who operate the company We Rent Goats, came to retrieve them in their truck around 8 a.m.

The goats were a part of a rental service that rents out herds of goats to clear weeds and help with fire suppression on private land and public property.

The goats had been grazing nearby when they somehow escaped and set off on a snacking tour of the neighborhood, according to KTVB. The station also reported that We Rent Goats was able to corral all goats and return them to work.
