Justice for Goat Chased to Death by Photo-Seeking Tourists

mountain-goat-by-skeeze

Target: Sam Cotten, Commissioner of the Alaska Department of Fish and Game

Goal: Demand harsher penalties for tourists who encroach on animals in their natural habitat.

A goat died after a group of visitors chased it into the ocean. The visitors were reportedly attempting to get a picture of the goat. Demand harsher penalties for visitors who encroach on wild animals.

Seward troopers received a call about visitors harassing a mountain goat, but the goat had already fled the scene by the time they arrived. The visitors reportedly followed the goat all the way to the aquarium and marine mammal rescue and rehabilitation facility, a location far from its natural habitat. From there it sought refuge in the ocean, where it eventually drowned.

Human encroachment has become a problem in many wildlife locations. Recently, a baby bison had to be euthanized after visitors removed it from its habitat. Sign below and demand stricter penalties for visitors who encroach on wild animals.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Commissioner Cotten,

A mountain goat drowned while attempting to flee from a group of visitors. The group was reportedly pursuing the goat in an attempt to take a picture. We demand harsher penalties for visitors who encroach on wild animals.

The goat entered the ocean under duress, reports claim. The visitors blocked off the rocky shore, leaving it no other escape route. The goat swam for an undetermined amount of time before finally drowning.

Encroaching on a wild animal is dangerous to both the animal and the people involved. We demand that you set up strictly enforced boundaries between visitors and wildlife and implement harsher penalties for those who cross them.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]
