Claims Filed In Death Of Washington Hiker Gored By Goat

PORT ANGELES, Wash. (AP) - The widow of a Port Angeles hiker who was fatally gored by a mountain goat in Washington's Olympic National Park has filed a wrongful death claim against the park.

Bob Boardman died last October after a mountain goat followed him and gored him on a popular park trail about 17 miles south of Port Angeles.

The Peninsula Daily News reports that three wrongful death claims totaling $10 million have been filed.

They were filed by Boardman's wife Susan Chadd, her son Jacob Haverfield and Boardman's estate.

Tacoma lawyer John Messina, who represents Boardman's estate, says the park is liable for the 63-year-old's death.

Park spokeswoman Barb Maynes said officials would not comment on the claims.
