Goat news…..

from Friends of the Lardeau River:

Thanks to all who phoned the MOT re concerns of Mountain goats and traffic on Hwy 31 north of Lardeau. The Ministry listened and hired a Mountain goat specialist. This week a group of volunteers placed a variety mineral salts at select locations high above the road.

Apparently the shift to succulent green vegetation each spring alters the goats’ mineral balance causing them to seek minerals, they are most often seen at this location Apr through July.

Of course there is no guarantee the goats won’t be back on the road, please drive carefully.

Feel free to share.
