(Willard-AP) -- Utah state park officials have got some new weed eaters for Willard Bay.

Two-hundred-sixty goats now graze around the park, eating up noxious weeds.

The weeds are hard to get rid of. Park workers can't really use weed-killing chemicals, because of all the camping and other activities that go on at the northern Utah park.

But park superintendent Roland Bringhurst says he's impressed with the simple, old-fashioned solution. He says the goats have done an amazing job of clearing out the weeds.
