Grand Teton NP drops aerial kills of invasive mountain goats in favor of volunteer gunners

Efforts to remove nonnative mountain goats from Grand Teton National Park will resume this fall, and the park is seeking volunteers to help with the culling.

Last winter aerial marksmen brought in by the park killed three dozen mountain goats before Interior Secretary David Bernhardt, responding to concerns from Wyoming Gov. Mark Gordon, ordered a halt to the work. The problem from the governor's viewpoint was that the park wasn't using any ground-based volunteers in the culling.
