Usually, there is either a political or religious story that catches our eye. Today, however, one headline stood out among the rest. Easily.
In fact, I had to look twice to make sure it wasn’t a joke headline from The Onion.
From Canada’s National Post:
***MYSTERIOUS ‘GOAT MAN’ SPOTTED IN UTAH MOUNTAINS***
Now admit it: you’d read that story. Heck, with that headline, you pretty much HAVE to.
I’m not a hunter, so I’ll ask the hunters out there: Is this normal? I mean, do you guys rent bear costumes or deer costumes, too?
I’m just askin’…
OGDEN, Utah — State wildfire officials have identified a man who has been spotted dressed in a goat suit among a herd of wild goats in the mountains of northern Utah.
Phil Douglass of the Utah Division of Wildlife Resources said Monday the mystery man is a 57-year-old hunter from Southern California.
Douglass told the Standard-Examiner that the hunter called officials and provided enough information to put their curiosity to rest. Douglass says he didn’t ask for a name.
The man described his suit as a hooded painter’s uniform and a fleece.
Last week, officials said they were worried the “goat man” was putting himself in danger, either from the animals themselves, or by being mistaken for a goat by another hunter.
