Mountain Goat Relocation
In this Sept. 6, 2013 photo, Division of Wildlife Resources Regional Wildlife manager Teresa Griffin is all smiles carrying a captured mountain goat kid from helicopter landing site under a late afternoon rainbow, in Beaver, Utah. A capture crew used a helicopter, net guns and slings to catch more than 50 of the wild goats from their home about 12,000 feet above sea level and delivered them to Utah wildlife biologists. The blindfolded animals made nary a snort while being given a series of medical tests, adorned with collars, loaded into crates and given their marching orders.
