Forest Service shoots paintballs at mountain goats to "teach" them.
MT. ELLINOR, Wash. -- After a rash of mountain goat sightings this summer, the U.S. Forest Service has reopened the trail up Mount Ellinor.

The Forest Service closed the trail after three hikers reported seeing aggressive mountain goats on the Olympic range mountain July 3.

In October 2010, a mountain goat killed hiker Robert Boardman in the Olympic National Park.

Over the summer, Forest Service employee Kurt Aluzas had the trails to himself. The wildlife biologist used a number of what the Forest Service calls "adversive" techniques to scare off the mountain goats.

Aluzas shot paintballs, sprayed repellant and used his voice to clear the trails of goats the last three months. He suggested hikers yell and stand their ground if they run into a mountain goat.

Forest Service wins Paintball war with aggressive mountain goats

The U.S. Forest Service has reopened a popular trail in the Olympic National Forest but not before it had to deploy Paintball guns in a war for dominance against several unruly mountain goats.

The Associated Press reports that Forest Service employee Kurt Aluzas was tasked with "teaching" the goats to avoid humans after the animals got a little too comfortable approaching humans on the trail.

"We just stand firm, stand up and face them. That's all you need to do," Aluzas told KING-TV.

bump For the goats.

I don't care if they are "aggressive they are. There has to be a better way than shooting them with paintballs.

Scared the crap out of that bear, huh? What was that anyway? It didn't appear like anyone shot at the bear. You first hear what sounds like a fire cracker and then the boom.

It is like a blank 12 gauge shotgun blast from a small pen gun. You screw the cartridge in the top of the the pen and a sharp point pierce the foil cover. Then cock the gun with your thumb (it's spring loaded) and then release.

They work very well on moose and bad-ass dogs too.

You can also load flares into them. Fires about 100 yards max. All fits in your pocket.

Costs about $20 for the gun and $20 for 6 cartridges.

Is this the mountain goat habitat. Humans have so much land and they still want more. F.S. should have shot the humans for invading Goat Land. WTF, we'll teach those goats to be submissive. One day you too will be goat in their eyes.
