You’ll Never Guess How A Wildlife Biologist Trained Aggressive Mountain Goats To Stay Away From Humans
In Washington State, the Forest Service has finally reopened a popular trail in the Olympic National Forest after a wildlife biologist spent much of the summer teaching aggressive mountain goats to stay away from people.
The trail up Mount Ellinor was closed in early July after several groups of hikers reported encountering very assertive goats that would often attack hikers. So how'd they teach 'em? Basically the goats got to experience a summer's worth of getting hit with paintballs.
It worked quite well. They run from humans now and the trail reopened Monday.
I am wondering if this kind of training would work on my pizza addiction?
