Those kudzu-eating goats have found their own way to cool off in this heat. (Madelyn Mills photo)
Man, it’s hot out there. What do you do? Climb into your water trough, of course. Madelyn Mills of South Street in Davidson captured these kudzu-eating goats doing just that the other day out on the cross-country course at Davidson College.
Madelyn likes to run on the 8K loop of the course and has been seeing a lot of the goats – a herd the college hired to help with its kudzu problem on the north side of campus. She’s a rising 11th grader at Hough High School in Cornelius. Thanks for snapping the photo, Madelyn.

Firefighters received a report that a tree had fallen across East Rocky River Road as a result of Thursday’s evening storm. The overnight crew on Engine 3 assisted by cutting the tree into manageable pieces and removing it from the roadway. The same crew investigated a smoke scare shortly after responding to a medical call at The Pines.
A number of minor cooking incidents caused accidental fire alarm activations throughout the week, and Cornelius firefighters battled a vehicle fire on Interstate-77 near Exit 28 on Tuesday. An infant was extricated from a locked vehicle in an unrelated incident at Direct Furniture Connection, and the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Utilities Department had to assist a private pavement cleaning company when workers realized that their truck was connected to a fire hydrant that could not be turned off.
Details on these stories and others (as well as a tally of the week’s medical calls) may be found below.
