Idaho Mountain Goats Attack Hikers
After hikers have been head butted and charged by mountain goats, the U.S. Forest Service has temporarily closed an Idaho hiking trail because of the aggressive animals.
The Bonner County Daily Bee reports that the Scotchman Peak Trail was closed over the weekend.
Idaho Panhandle National Forests spokesman Jason Kirchner says the closure is meant to allow time for the goats to find other sources of food other than humans who have been feeding them during the summer which would make them less likely to approach humans.
The Forest Service says a hiker required stitches after he was bitten by a goat in June.
