Mountain Goats
Motorists: Beware of Goats in Snake River Canyon
by Wyoming Game & Fish
January 7, 2020

Each winter, mountain goats that inhabit the high cliffs of the Snake River Canyon, make their way down to lower elevations. Some of these goats can be seen near, or even on the roadway at the southern end of the canyon near the town of Alpine. It can be a great wildlife watching opportunity, but unfortunately each year some of these goats end up getting struck by vehicles. So far, at least three have been hit and killed and the winter is just getting started.

In an effort to prevent these collisions, Wyoming Game and Fish employees will often attempt to haze the goats off the roadway throughout the winter and spring months. Electronic message trailers are also used periodically, but ultimately, itís up to motorists to slow down and be alert for wildlife through this dangerous stretch of Highway 89.
