Goat Man in Utah

Hey, did you hear about the goat man in Utah? Stories were flying all around about this mystery man for awhile. It was like Big Foot with pictures and everything.

Was it a hoax? People began taking sides.

Here’s a quote from a 9News article:

The DWR received two anonymous phone calls Thursday morning from a man agitated about media coverage of the individual in the goat suit.

“The man repeatedly stated, ‘Leave goat man alone, he’s done nothing wrong,’ ” Douglass said.

More details in these articles:

Goat man spotted in mountains of Northern Utah, 9News.

Hiker Talks about Encounter with ‘goat man’ on Ben Lomond Peak, Standard-Examiner.

Ultimately, the mystery was solved:

Official: Goat man in Utah mountains is hunter, KOMOnews.

And then, a copy cat emerged. Sort of. As presented in this article: Goat man, meet hot dog man.

And then, Mark Sall, humor columnist from the Standard-Examiner weighed in and smelled a conspiracy that stems all the way from previous suspicious goat news. (Remember that story about spinning silk from goat milk?):

New York’s Spider Man has nothing on northern Utah, Standard-Examiner.

Thanks to Warren, Suebob, and Barbara for keeping me up to date on this exciting tale.

    lolol hillarious, love the goat picture, is so cuddly!! 🙂

  2. That’s a gorgeous rug! And who could resist Buttermilk? Even Henry had to jump up behind me on the chair to see what that strange noise was, coming from my computer! (No barking from him… just curiosity!)

    1. Margaret says:

      Go Henry! Does he bark at the cats you watch on your computer?

      1. Cats on the television or computer don’t bother him, but he jumps up with his front paws on the TV table to bark at any dogs he hears on the television. That Honda “Bark-Wars” ad drove him to a conniption fit!

  3. AWWWWW I love the first goat the BEST!

    1. Margaret says:

      I know! Isn’t he a cutie?

  4. Jayne says:

    Those are hysterical. I love goats!

    1. Margaret says:

      Me too! Obviously. Duh.

  5. Buttermilk reminds me of Zoe. They even look alike. I love listening to them laugh! What fun animals. Makes me want one.

    1. Margaret says:

      If I had a backyard….

  6. Jewel says:

    Not many people would think of taking their goats surfing, still the goats seemed to be enjoying it.

    1. Margaret says:

      They must be, or wouldn’t they not go along with the silly humans?

  7. Pricilla says:

    I keep trying to tell you that goats are going to rule the world. You just don’t believe me.

    1. Margaret Andrews says:

      It’s just a matter time, I know that now.
