Sheep used to keep grass cut in Parks
Half the herd put up for auction
The town of Parks, Louisiana has just cut 15 employees from its workforce.
These "employees" already have a new gig lined up. They are moving to a new farm.
For years, the town has used sheep to to keep the grass short in one section of town. It's an area that's hard to reach with a lawn mower and the herd has done a good job.
The sheep have multiplied over the years and there isn't enough grass for all the animals.
The town put up half for auction. A buyer bought the herd of 15 for around $300.
