Watch Out and Be Careful

You never know what wild animals are going to do. Try as you might to harvest a deer, go up north, tromp thru the woods or sit on a prime spot, it’s hard to do for the average person. Most times just to see a deer is a big deal, not so in Wyandotte recently.

As seen from the USS Friendship this 4-6 point buck was looking for a new home. After a quick flyby of the McDonalds carry out window his freedom was achieved.


Soon he was roaming the streets of Wyandotte and ended up on 22nd near Eureka. The police escorted him to the tracks and left him to his own devices. It’s exciting to see wildlife anywhere unless you’re traveling in a vehicle or jogging. If you’re hunting this is when you need to be careful. Always make sure you know what you’re hunting and what you’re shooting at. Recently there was a tragic accident when a coyote hunter shot another person that was scouting for deer. The excitement of seeing your quarry can cause you to see things that aren’t really there.

This brings me to a report from Utah that states an avid goat hunter recently dressed up as a goat and was seen trying to invade a tribe of goats in the mountains. The hikers that spotted the “goat” were at first startled and then became very concerned after they could discern that in fact the “goat” was a person.

Coty Creighton, 33, spotted the goat man Sunday during his hike. He said he came across the herd, but noticed something odd about one goat that was trailing behind the rest.

“I thought maybe it was injured,” Creighton said Friday. “It just looked odd.”

He said he pulled out binoculars to get a closer look at the herd about 200 yards away and was shocked. The man appeared to be acting like a goat while wearing the crudely made costume, which had fake horns and a cloth mask with cut-out eye holes.

The Utah DNR has contacted the goat actor and the two have come to an agreement that the charade will not happen again. SNL however is trying to contact the man/goat/boy.
