Stay Away From Mountain Goats
Last fall a man was fatally gored by a mountain goat while hiking in Olympic National Park. This has prompted a $10 million wrongful death lawsuit against the park for not properly warning hikers of the aggressive goat. The lawsuit was filed in May, giving the park until November 1st to respond, from The Wall Street Journal.
Mountain goats, especially in popular hiking areas have associated people to salty snacks. They see hikers as one big salt lick. The males are usually more aggressive than the females and kids. There have been recent reports of aggressive mountain goats in the Wenatchee National Forest.
Park Officials are considering putting in salt licks, further away from popular recreational areas in the park and forest. From KPLU.org.
