Lost Doggos Spotted Near Lincoln Falls

Enroute skiing back to the Montgomery Reservoir TH after skiing Clinton, I heard a dog barking somewhere around Lincoln Falls for quite sometime on the descent—it was basically non-stop. When I got back to the car around noon, I pulled out my binoculars to take a look, and to much of my surprise saw two dogs way above lookers left of the falls barking at some mountain goats perched in a very steep area.

Maybe the doggos chased the goats and got cliffed out in the process? I saw the doggos make multiple attempts to descend the steep terrain and they ended up hesitating and turning back every time. Maybe they were not leaving because they wanted to get the mountain goats? Are they super hungry because they have been lost for so long? Where did they come from? So many questions. I checked with all of the parties that had a parked vehicle at the TH and nobody stated that they were missing dogs.

I would have considered climbing up to them if the snow hadn’t already gone to sh*t with the warming— definitely gotta be careful in that area as far as wet snow avalanches, ice fall, and rock fall go.

Definitely share if you know someone who lost their dogs in this area! Park County animal control has been notified.

All the best,

Nice spot! I think you did all you could given the conditions and situation. Hopefully Park County Animal Control can sort it out.

Now for the joke that I know is coming if I don’t say it.

Those new guard dogs that the mining claim owners put to work are taking their job too seriously. We get it, those goats are non-native and not supposed to be here…

Update - I spoke with someone who lives near there when I saw your post. Unfortunately it is a local dog owner that has let their dogs get loose (?lost) up there on more than one occasion. Apparently the dogs are back with the owner now and the goats are unharmed.

That's a lot of ice.
