Rangers in Washington state suspect an encounter with a mountain goat killed a 63-year-old hiker in Olympic National Park.
The park service says Robert H. Boardman, of Port Angeles, was hurt Saturday as he hiked near the park's Klahhane Ridge and died hours later at a Port Angeles hospital.
Officials did not provide any specifics on his injuries but said an early investigation indicates they were the result of an encounter with a goat.
Rangers tracked down and killed the animal, which will be analyzed by a veterinary pathologist.
Excuse the shit out of me?
Fucking dumb ass stumbles into the goats territory and gets his ass kicked for his trouble and they shoot the fucking goat?
There is some wild life conservation for ya.
How much ya want to bet these same geniuses declare the Mountain Goat population endangered next year?
