Depends on which goats, terrain and the day. Ones I found on Pyramid were fine though I gave 'em a wide berth as they had a kid. Group spotted on N. Maroon in a LOW area by Minnehaha Gulch were fine then but later...

Ain't much room to "Ole!" in the second gulley. I prefer to keep wildlife wild and unfamiliar/uncomfortable with humans. Even if it can kill you, they can be pests. Actually, even pests can kill:

Not sure if I'll do more 14ers. The trip reports are too tiring. :wink:

I'll add a little more fuel to the fire. Mountain Goats are a non-native, invasive species that endanger native bighorn sheep. Mountain goats were transplanted to Colorado by the Colorado Department of Wildlife and increases revenue from hunting.
