OLYMPIC NATIONAL PARK â€” Visitors to Olympic National Park are being urged not to urinate along trails frequented by mountain goats, to avoid turning trails into â€œlong, linear salt licksâ€ and attracting goats.
Itâ€™s a new measure park officials are instituting as part of their revised mountain goat action plan.
That plan includes safety-inspired trail closures of two weeks or more and â€œaversive conditioningâ€ of the animals when they become too aggressive.
The plan, released Thursday by the park, also urges visitors and park staff to keep at least 50 yards distance from all mountain goats regardless of the animalsâ€™ behavior.
