Last Monday, a mountain goat gored and killed a hiker in Olympic National Park, so the Slate website decided to put together this pointless article that asks: What You Should Do if You're Attacked by a Mountain Goat?
Their recommendations? Run for your life. Failing that? Throw rocks at a goat. That fails also? Grab the goat by the horns -- only to be told they're razor sharp (bye bye fingers!) and the goat is so strong you're only going to be able to hold on for a brief moment anyway -- and pray that someone shows up with a gun. To save you. In the middle of a national park. Right.
My take: if you're going into for a romantic hike with your loved one, carry a nice bat. If you don't get to play baseball, you can give that goat a run for your money.
