Four days after contracted gunners wrapped up flights, Grand Teton National Park shared information about how many goats were killed in the Tetons before U.S. Interior Secretary David Bernhardt intervened.
“Thirty-six of the approximately 100 mountain goats were removed,” the park announced in a series of bullet points emailed out Tuesday. “No additional aerial operations are planned. The closure of the central Teton Range is lifted.”
Grand Teton’s statement said they’re developing a “skilled volunteer culling program,” and that “trained volunteers” will get to it via "ground-based methods" as early as fall 2020.
