About Goats: LEAVE THEM ALONE!

Posted on Wednesday, August 12th, 2015 by »

2015-Goat-PosterAbout goats. We have been trying to educate people about goats for the past several years. Some of you are not listening, and many of you are ignoring the signs posted at the trail head and on the mountain.

LISTEN UP! I HATE TO “YELL,” BUT SOME FOLKS ARE OBVIOUSLY NOT GETTING THE MESSAGE.

GOATS ARE WILD ANIMALS.

AS SUCH, THEY ARE UNPREDICTABLE AND SOMEWHAT DANGEROUS, PARTICULARLY IF THEY ARE HABITUATED.

DO NOT LET GOATS LICK YOU! YOU ARE ENDANGERING YOURSELF AND THE GOATS THEMSELVES.

DO NOT FEED THE GOATS. SCOTCHMAN PEAK IS NOT A PETTING ZOO.

IF GOATS APPROACH YOU, BACK AWAY, MAKE LOUD NOISES, THROW A ROCK OR TWO. IF THEY PERSIST, GO HOME, SUMMIT OR NOT.

STAY AWAY FROM THE GOATS!
