An "Eco-Goat" begins the process of clearing land adjacent to the historic Congressional Cemetery on Aug. 7, 2013 in Washington, D.C. Dozens of goats will be used to clear a two-acre plot of land covered with vines, poison ivy, and ground cover adjacent to the cemetery where former FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover, photographer Mathew Brady, and former Vice President Elbridge Gerry are buried. Goats are being used for the task to prevent toxic weed killing chemicals from being used so close to the nearby Anacostia River. (Photo: Win McNamee/Getty Images)
