The decision was welcomed by Keep Boston Goat Free, an advocacy organization that had raised concerns over goats to city council.

The people of Boston and concerned citizens everywhere worked hard to convince the City Council that this was a serious issue and we're thrilled that our voices have been heard."

Reports of goat-related nuisance complaints had risen over 300% this year on the city's 311 service, prompting Sylvie Thayer, a teacher within District 2, to take action. "I'd just had enough of the smell. When no one was taking my concerns seriously, I turned to Keep Boston Goat Free to amplify my voice," said Sylvie.
City Council President Ed Flynn presided over the vote and shared his support for the ordinance. "The City of Boston deserves to be a place where citizens can enjoy their lives - and clearly it has become a problem for anyone to do so with the increase in goat complaints," he said.
Ordinance Section 16 1.9G goes into effect immediately and Keep Boston Goat Free reminds everyone that if they see a goat in Boston, they can report it to the city's 311 service via app or email.
