'Goat Man' spotted in Utah mountains

Sightings of a man wearing a goat costume in a field of real goats have puzzled authorities in Utah.

Phil Douglass of the Utah Division of Wildlife Resources has stated that while the so-called 'goat man' isn't doing anything illegal, he could be putting himself in danger as it will soon be the start of the goat hunting season. "My very first concern is the person doesn't understand the risks," said Douglass. "Who's to say what could happen."

While it isn't clear what the man's intentions are, it could simply be that he is an extreme wildlife enthusiast trying to get close to the animals. "People do some pretty out there things in the name of enjoying wildlife. But I've never had a report like this," said Douglass.

"Douglass said a man hiking Sunday along Ben Lomond peak in the mountains above Ogden, about 40 miles north of Salt Lake City, spotted the person dressed like a goat among a herd of real goats."

Sorry, GMRO is devoted to serious cryptozoological research. This is as serious as Bigfoot and the Loch Ness Monster, you know... (Hehe... "William Gruff" ) Lol GMRO, I thought your were serious until I cracked that acronym. You can thank Criptic Chameleon for the William Gruff gag, I couldn't take credit for his genius.

The mystery of the Goat Man is solved. He is apparently a 57year old hunter who was preparing for a goat hunt, using a fleece covered suit. http://usnews.nbcnew...-is-solved?lite I hereby retract my earlier assertion that he was 'up to no good'.
