On a visit to Goatman National Park, he saw...
Was it beast, or man?


Coty Creighton was hiking along a trail in Utah when he spotted something odd in a herd of wild goats a few hundred yards away.

One goat was trailing behind, as if it was injured. Mr. Creighton took out his binoculars to get a better look.

It was not a goat.

The goat was actually a man dressed in a goat costume, with fake horns and a cloth mask with eye holes.

The goat man was scrambling on all fours, acting like a goat.

When the goat man saw a man looking at him, he froze, then rejoined his herd.

Mr. Creighton took photographs and showed them to authorities. The photos appeared genuine.

There is nothing illegal about dressing like a goat, but the Utah Division of Wildlife Resources said that it might be a dangerous activity.

Sixty permits will be issued for goat hunting season in that area.

After reports of the fake goat sighting, officials received a phone call from what they called an "agitated man" who said:

"Leave goat man alone. He’s done nothing wrong.’"
