Not sold yet? Consider the free bonus offering: "As they graze, they will likely leave behind some droppings, too, and you'll get to keep this fertilizer as a friendly parting gift!"

Weirdly, this isn't Amazon's first brush with goat-kind. Amazon Japan has used goats on its grounds in Gifu Prefecture, Kotaku reported in 2013.
