A Goat’s Revenge?

Killer mountain goat strikes in US

Despite what PETA would have you believe, not all animals are cute and friendly. In fact some are psychopathic nut-jobs — like a certain mountain goat.

A 63-year-old hiker has died in the US after he was attacked by an aggressive mountain goat on Klahhane Ridge in Olympic National Park.

Robert Boardman had been out walking with his wife in Washington when they were approached by the goat as they ate lunch.

He tried to shoo the crazed animal away, but the ram — which was known to rangers as being aggressive — charged and gored him in the leg.

Park rangers said they had tried conditioning the goat to be scared of people by shooting it with bean bags… maybe they just aggravated it.

Boardman was taken to hospital but was unfortunately pronounced dead. The goat was also killed.
