Sandy Compton was, of course, correct in pointing out that the goat problem at Scotchman Peak was, in fact, a human problem.
I think that the hikers that feed the goats should be shot with bean bags. Then, if the offending hikers continue to think it is cute to feed crappy human food to wild animals of any species, they should be darted, radio collared and relocated to a large urban location where they can sit on a bench and feed the squirrels and pigeons.
Now that’s more like it! Lee Santa, take note; THIS is how you write a letter to the editor. [Ben Olson]
