An end to the mystery that has captivated America?

State wildlife officials have identified the man who has been spotted dressed in a goat suit among a herd of wild goats in the mountains of northern Utah.

Phil Douglass of the Utah Division of Wildlife Resources said Monday the mystery man is a 57-year-old hunter from Southern California.

Douglass told the Standard-Examiner that the hunter called officials and provided enough information to put their curiosity to rest. Douglass says he didn’t ask for a name.

The man told Douglass he was preparing for an archery hunt of mountain goats next year and testing a goat suit.

Uh-huh, sure. Just what are they really hiding up there? Goats? I didn’t watch all those 70s horror movies for nothing, y’know!

And, naturally, he’s from California…

    The Rocky Mountains being on the west side of the continent caused the country to tilt and all the nuts rolled to California.

    From California, in a goat costume, in a herd of goats, and with a box full of condoms? Isn’t that normal in California?
