Troopers: mountain goat taken illegally

A mountain goat was taken illegally recently by an unknown poacher on Bullard Mountain, according to a release from the Alaska Wildlife Troopers.

The report states a small portion of a goat cape and goat hooves were found on the south side of the mountain, adjacent to the Nugget Creek drainage.

Goats can only be taken in Juneau in the fall, and can not be taken at all in an area bounded by Mendenhall Glacier, the mouth of Nugget Creek to its confluence with Goat Creek, and a line from the mouth of Goat Creek to the glacier.

Anyone with information about this case is asked to contact the Alaska Wildlife Troopers at 465-4000.
