"[The rocky mountain goat's] flesh is musky and dry and it is not palatable to white men except when they are exceedingly hungry. Its skin has no commercial value. For these reasons and also because it is hard to reach, the Rocky Mountain goat is not likely to be exterminated very soon." --Game Animals of America, Horniday, 1916.

You know, with artificial cloths and cheap farmed protien, the worry about hunting animals to extiction, at least in America, has decreased. Habitat destruction, yes, still a worry.
