Colorado Parks and Wildlife Issue Mountain Goat Warning
Fox 31 Denver is reporting that Colorado Parks and Wildlife sent out a warning for travelers on the Mount Evans Scenic Byway. They say mountain goats are acting unnatural, even being caught on video licking the salt off car tires and entering public bathrooms.

They say the unnatural behavior is the result of humans feeding the animals in order to get close and take photos.
Colorado Forest Service and Denver Mountain Parks will be there all summer to enforce the rules in the hopes that it will stop the behavior. They believe this kind of human activity could end with dangerous encounters with wild animals.
