Mountain goats at Olympic National Park have a tendency to get a little too close for comfort; they are known to follow hikers around in hopes of getting a salty lick from their sweat, urine or food. Now, as Evan Bush at the Seattle Times reports, in an effort to protect visitors and habitat, the park's or so goats are being relocated or killed off. According to a news release , back in May the National Park Service filed a final Mountain Goat Management Plan for the park, laying out a multi-year process of evicting the ungulates from the Olympics. Two more two-week relocation periods are scheduled to take place next year. Officials believe they will be able to transport about half the goat population; any goats that are not reachable by wildlife officials will be killed over the next three to five years.

The name of the park comes from the Pleistocene megafauna fossils found there. Mammoths are believed to have been drawn to this location by a salt lick deposited around the sulfur springs. The area near the springs was very soft and marshy causing many animals to become stuck with no way to escape. While he assumed the bones were from ancient elephants, the local native traditions claimed the bones to be those of white buffaloes that had been poisoned by the salty water.
