Grand Teton plan would trap or kill goats to help bighorns

A mountain goat leads its kid across the Mount Evans Scenic Byway just below the summit near Idaho Springs. Spotting a mountain goat perched high on a cliff might thrill many visitors to a national park in Wyoming, but park officials said Tuesday the agile animals might need to go. Grand Teton National Park officials say the park’s 100 or so mountain goats threaten a herd of about 80 bighorn sheep.
