The Norse Peak Fire probably killed more goats than the wolves did throughout washington state.

I'm not looking to argue - I'm sure you know much more about it than I do.....

I'm just surprised that Mt Goats would be all that susceptible to fire.

Did the fire trap them, or...????

Thanks,

Dan

I doubt there were many goat kills in norsepeak fire. Maybe the aftermath of loss of food, but fire directly itself, I doubt it.

I think that would be dumb luck if a wolf could kill a goat. :dunno:

If there are that many goats there should be more tags then, since the WDFW themselves says one tag for every 100 goats basically.
