(ANSA) - Rome, May 16 - Rome has mooted using sheep and other animals to keep the grass in its parks and villas down, environment committee chair Pinuccia Montanari said Wednesday, taking up a proposal by Mayor Virginia Raggi.
    She said their use would be extended from the outlying Caffarella Park to "other parks and also to the major villas".
    The opposition democratic Party (PD) said "this is the umpteenth joke from Raggi".
    The PD said "it comes on top of her using seagulls to dispose of rubbish. "The next thing will be geckoes to get rid of mosquitoes".
