SALT LAKE CITY — Utah wildlife officials want to talk to a man spotted in the mountains wearing a goat suit amid a herd of real wild goats.
Phil Douglass of the Utah Division of Wildlife Resources says the person is doing nothing illegal, but he worries the so-called "goat man" is unaware of the dangers.
Sixty permits will be issued for goat hunting season in September in the same area in the mountains above Ogden, about 40 miles north of Salt Lake City. Douglass also says the goats could be dangerous.
A man hiking along Ben Lomond peak in the Wasatch range spotted the goat man on Sunday. Douglass says the hiker took blurry photographs and it was clear they weren't altered.
He says the man may just be a wildlife enthusiast.
