PENN HILLS, Pa. (AP) - The property of an all-natural cemetery in western Pennsylvania will be maintained by a herd of goats.

Pete McQuillin, the owner of Penn Forest Natural Burial Park in Penn Hills, tells the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review (https://bit.ly/1VqSDyL ) that he aims to use the goats for maintenance and landscaping.

McQuillin says he plans to install electric fencing to section off portions of land starting with 50- by 50-foot areas. The goats will be moved around the 36-acre property whenever brush needs to be cleared.

The cemetery does not use herbicides or power tools- except occasionally a weed whacker -for upkeep.

The park has six adult goats and three baby goats, with three more expected in the coming weeks.
