OLYMPIA, Wash. - The National Park Service, along with the USDA Forest Service and the Washington State Department of Fish and Wildlife, have released the final version of a plan to manage non-native mountain goats in the Olympic Mountains.
The plan involves the relocation of the majority of mountain goats to USDA Forest Service lands in the North Cascades forests, and the lethal removal of the remaining goats in the park.
The plan was developed to reduce environmental damage created by the non-native mountain goats in the park, as well as eliminate the public safety risks.
