A man spotted dressed in a goat suit among a herd of wild goats in the mountains of northern Utah has wildlife officials worried he could be in danger as hunting season approaches.

Phil Douglass of the Utah Division of Wildlife Resources said Friday the person is doing nothing illegal, but he worries the so-called "goat man" is unaware of the dangers.

Hey! I recognize him! He’s a professor at a local university.

Is there a government program for feral PHDs?

Saw this yesterday. Make sure you read the story. There were only 3 ways to get to this place. a 3 mile hike, a 5 mile hike or a 6 mile hike. The photographer came the 3 mile way and he was the only car at the parking lot. a serious WTF moment or someone is hoaxing. wish there was follow up but i think this may just be all there is going to be.

unless a FReeper fesses up to this...? /h

He’s a spy for the obama campaign, sniffing around Utah trying to dig up dirt on the Romney clan. Baaaaaa.

At least the guy didn't forget to wear boots in that terrain.
Maybe some wacko got off track and thought an oil refinery was going to built there.

Why would a man try to look like a goat, and hang around with goats, and ...

“wildlife officials worried he could be in danger as hunting season approaches”...

LOL!!!

“as hunting season approaches”...

Why else do you think he’d be out there practicing his stalking skills and getting the goats used to him being there with them... before hunting season starts ?

Phil Douglass needs to get a real life and a real job instead on being an hysterical tax-leach.

Could be a wildlife photographer trying to get a one in a million picture. Could be a biologist doing some kind of study on the goats.

An honest question: Is that John DeLorean in the photo?
The reason I ask is because he was head of the Pontiac Division of GM before he chucked his job at GM and attempted to create his own gig building cars.

nope, according to the source: Jim Wangers, the man most closely associated with the advertising and promotion of Pontiac during the glory days of the 60s and 70s, the man affectionately termed, the "Godfather of the GTO"

The above link has a great story about the real “Goat-Man” who wandered the roads from Georgia to LA from the 30s thru the late 80s.

What a story. That is a REAL American story. Didn’t accept welfare until it was all he could do. Had goats, ingenuity, sweat and industry working for him. Of course, he didn’t do it by himself. Others did that.
