Night Time Goat Sighting at the Muni Yard
My girlfriend was riding the 38BX into work yesterday morning when she looked up and saw hundreds of goats as her bus was passing the Muni Barn at Geary and Presidio. It looks like they are there, on the western hillside, to trim down the overgrowth. Apparently, no one else on the bus saw them since they all were too busy with headphones on, trying to ignore each other. I didn’t believe her when she told me so she made me jump in the car with her and drive over to the Muni Barn on the Trader Joe’s side. Sure enough, there were some 200 goats just hanging out on the hillside! It looked like they were settling in for the night, but they are still scampering about when she took the bus this morning.
And here are the goats scampering away.

Two years ago we had another sighting of goats at the Muni yard and learned that they may be from Goats R Us or City Grazing. The goats have been spotted at CCSF and Forest Hill station.
Thank you, Tony and girlfriend, for your investigative Muni goat reporting!
During the day, there was a a guy in the yard below the goats wearing nothing but a red pair of underwear. I think he was there to watch them.
So you are saying these are not wild goats but belong to a company that rents them out to cut the grass in large areas?
Some daytime photos here:
The link provided by MrEricSir proves it, these goats belong to a company that rents them out to keep down the foliage.
Since it’s October at first glance I thought the headline was ‘Night Time Ghost Sighting at the Muni Yard.’
So instead of ‘BOO!’ we’re getting ‘Baaaa!’
Hopefully there’s some sort of fencing on the Yard side so those goats won’t become road kill, sort of speak.
