DOBBS FERRY -

Dobbs Ferry has “hired” some four-legged landscapers to take a bite out of some overgrown brush.

The village is utilizing three goats to chomp down on shrubs and poison ivy to make way for a better view of the waterfront.

Officials say the goats are saving the village thousands of dollars.

The animals are on loan from a farm in Rhinebeck and will reside in Dobbs Ferry until October.
