The kids aren't all right: California city says surfing's fine for goats, but turf is not

Pismo Beach is on board with surfing goats. But grazing goats can be a bummer.

Three goats — Grover, Pismo and Goatee — have become celebrities in the city on California's Central Coast and on YouTube after owner Dana McGregor taught them to surf.

But McGregor has gotten pricey tickets recently for letting them graze within city limits, and he is violating codes by keeping them at all.

Goats are allowed on larger lots and for temporary clearing of plants, which is why McGregor got a goat in the first place.

The San Luis Obispo Tribune (http://bit.ly/1pa0AGF ) reports Tuesday the city is considering allowing up to three goats on smaller lots and allowing them in parks on leashes.

They remain legal and welcome at the beach.
