Watercooler talk
ARLINGTON, Wash. (AP) — Dozens of Christmas trees in Arlington, Wash., not only were recycled, they became a meal for goats to munch on.
KING-TV in Seattle says the trees were taken to the New Moon Farm Goat Rescue and Sanctuary, where the evergreens were fed to about 38 goats.
Sanctuary owner Ellen Felsenthal says people like the idea of turning trees into goat food. She says she’s looking for good families to adopt the rescued goats.
