Hiked up to Niles Meadow yesterday and came across this sight at the far end of Sherbrooke Lake.
I'm thinking it's the fur off a mountain goat but thought it was weird that the animal would shed a lot of it in one place. Especially on a trail where there was nothing to snag its fur. (There were some traces above and below the trail but 90% of it was on the trail itself.)
There were no blood stains or bone fragments. Just fur.
