CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — Spotting a mountain goat perched high on a cliff might thrill many of the millions of tourists who visit Grand Teton National Park every year, but park officials say it might be time for the agile, bearded animals to go.

Park officials announced Tuesday they're taking public comment on a plan to kill or relocate the mountain goats.

Glacier National Park has a new ranger. Gracie is a two-year-old border collie. Starting in mid-July, Gracie will herd mountain goats and bighorn sheep out of popular areas, like the parking lot and trails at Logan Pass, to keep humans and wildlife a safe distance from each other.
