Here are a couple of pix I took last week of a mountain goat in Glacier National Park. Somebody decided to feed it sunflower seeds, so I was able to get a close pic.

Great pictures, I've had a couple upclose encounters with these in the Black Hills of South Dakota. They seemed so clumsy, until they started climbing up steep rock. Cool animals.

Very nice pair of photos, RyanH

They are majestic beasts.

Gotta be careful feedin' the goats tho...

Automatic fine if spotted by GNP rangers...and they can become very aggressive about "seconds" if you feed them.

I know. There is a big sign that says "DO NOT FEED THE ANIMALS!". Some lady decided the sign did not apply to her so she threw him some sunflower seeds. When somebody informed her not to feed the animals, she yelled at them that they are not park rangers and can't tell her what to do. It was a big tiff.

Then a little boy decided he would try to feed it something, and as you stated, he became aggressive and charged at the boy. Nothing happened though.
