Park Service sued over fatal Olympic goat goring
PORT ANGELES, Wash. — The family of a man who was gored to death by a mountain goat in Olympic National Park is suing the Park Service.
The lawsuit was filed Tuesday in federal court in Tacoma by the Messina Bulzomi Christensen law firm.
The Interior Department had earlier denied a $10 million wrongful death claim from the family of 63-year-old Bob Boardman of Port Angeles. A department lawyer said there was no evidence of negligence in the October 2010 death.
Tacoma attorney John Messina told the Peninsula Daily News the goat that killed Boardman was a rogue that the park should have done something about.
