Rangers Watch Goats
OLYMPIC NATIONAL PARK, Wash. –
Following the fatal goat attack earlier this month, rangers in the park are keeping a close eye on the mountain goat population. While there have been reports of somewhat aggressive behavior, the recent mauling was the first injury to occur and has prompted officials to be more proactive in monitoring the behavior of the park’s goat herd.
While such attacks are rare, rangers are patrolling the Klahhane Ridge several times a week and are encouraging hikers to keep a safe distance from wildlife.
