Those goats are wearing their masks wrong. Wearing masks that way isn't going to protect them from a COVID-19 infection.

Be careful around those goats. They can fly quite fast and as you can see, they fly blindfolded.

They're an invasive species in part of the state, and they can't cull them like they do with deer back east because the goats live in the national park. So NPS is capturing them, flying them 50+ miles, and setting them loose in another part of the state where they belong.

Sound like the Ballard Locks sea lions. They used to catch them and send then to southern California. But the sea lions would just swim back north to the salmon buffet. (The fish ladder. Salmon had no choice but go single file past the sea lions to enter it.) I don't know what either the sea lions are doing or what the polisy is now.

Wow. Send them to the Midwest. There are companies that rent their goats to consume invasive plants here. They're corralled in the desired area for a while and the goats eat damn near anything.

hopefully there are no protected wilderness areas nearby with endangered/endemic plants. goats are experts at escaping from enclosures. sounds like the cure is almost as worse as the disease.

yep, Australia has the largest goat population in the world. Also camels, donkeys, probably pigs and buffalos too. All feral and destroying the environment. They cull the goat and camels from choppers or muster them to sell to the middle east. You don't want to hit a feral camel with your car.

Having a goat or buffalo population issue in NY would get me back out hunting. Venison is nice but goat I really like and I've got a whole recipe book for Caribbean food and buffalo is just tasty.
Is camels even edible?

Yeah, apparently camels are tasty.
maybe we need to start a hunting tourism industry. Though apparently you need to be a very very good shot to shoot a camel from a chopper. Needs to be a kill shot every time.
A lot of our wildlife is at the verge of extinction due to ferals. The grazers eat all the cover and the foxes and wild dogs eat everything that moves. Except rabbits of course, there are billions of those (well high 9 figures depending on how the latest biological control is going)

Rabbit is tasty too, just have to make them culinary expeditions and leave out the helicopter. Or is the worry that the snakes and spiders will eat the hunters if they're on the ground?

nah, the worry is 3,000,000 camels can breed faster than ground based shooters can shoot them. The rabbits, only biological control keeps them in check. As for the 5,000,000 donkeys...

A few decades ago Jack In the Box served thousands of pounds of kangaroo meat as burgers. Now that might just be an urban legend I am not sure. Is there any Jack in the Box fast food places in Australia?
