Goats to the rescue

The vines got one congressman's goat.

Now, the goats are going to get the vines.

A community park on New York's Long Island is being overrun by thick and thorny vines.

The park is in a protected wetlands area, so chemicals can't be used.

Congressman Gary Ackerman's aides say they contacted the White House over the summer for help.

About a dozen goats are coming to Kings Point Park to munch on the unwanted foliage.

Eleven Americorps volunteers will also spend six weeks helping to clear out the cat green briar.
