As Europe scorches, goats and sheep fight wildfires one bite at a time

20 Sep 2017, TRF

Farmers in Spain have used their sheep and goats to reduce the severity of the wildfires by grazing dense forests. The grazing eliminates undergrowth that can spread fire more quickly, and have it burn in greater intensity. Using animals to reduce the vegetation is both cheaper and more sustainable in contrast to planned burns.
