Will surfing goats storm Pismo Beach?
May 20, 2014
The Pismo Beach City Council will consider this evening whether goats belong on private property and public parks within the city limits.
A Pismo Beach resident and YouTube star has recently received tickets for herding goats in the city. Pismo Beach resident Dana McGregor has been raising goats at his home and filming videos of the surfing.
City code currently prohibits keeping or raising goats within Pismo Beach limits, as well taking them to public parks. City staff is recommending that the council change the municipal code to allow up to four goats on private property.
Staff is also recommending that the council allow goats in public parks so long as they are kept on leashes. No regulation currently prohibits goats from wandering the beach.
