The sighting of a man dressed in a goat suit on a Utah mountain is causing concern among state wildlife officials, The Associated Press reported.

The man, who remains unidentified, was spotted by photographer Coty Creighton on July 15 during a hike on Ben Lomond peak just north of Ogden in northern Utah.

Creighton told the AP he saw the man through a set of binoculars trailing behind a herd of goats on his hands and knees.

When the man noticed he had been spotted, "he just stopped in his tracks and froze," Creighton told the AP. Advertise | AdChoices

That's when Creighton began taking photos. The man then sat on a hill for several minutes.

It is always a good idea to dress up as wildlife when hunting. /sarc

I would give a little more credence to this story if it came from a creditable news organization.

Another thread, Goat Man” Prompts Speculation, Awe

As to what he's got to look forward to theres the Woman’s ‘Rowr, I’m a Cougar’ Prank Results in Gunfire

If I had more time I'd look for an old thread about the idiots who think doe in heat urine is cologne, and poar it on themselves. I love the guys who dress up as cranes in central WI and help the whoopers migrate. We do threads about them every year.

But there's a purpose to that. What is goat man about.

He looks like Roger Swain from the old Victory Garden series on PBS which makes perfect sense...

“Goat Man” is attempting to work out a camo outfit to allow close approach to wild goats or possibly wild sheep.

My guess is the goal is a B & C level rack or a winning photo.
