The mountain goat population appears to be growing on Central Oregon's Mount Jefferson, two years after Oregon and the Confederated Tribes of Warm Springs returned the high-climbing animals to the peak.
A Bernese Mountain dog that raced off after a mountain goat in Washington's Olympic Mountains and fell 150 feet down a cliff survived for nearly three days until a volunteer mountain rescue team managed to find her.
Visitors to Olympic National Park are being urged not to urinate along trails frequented by mountain goats, to avoid attracting goats. The measure was OK'd in the wake of the goring death of Port Angeles resident Bob Boardman.
Jim Decker was hiking on the Olympic Peninsula when he noticed he was being trailed. "That (goat) had been stalking him, trying to gore him, charging him for about a mile and a half on the Mount Rose Trail," said wife Cindy Decker.
