Yet another senseless animal death at the hands of humans…

A wild mountain goat in Alaska has died after jumping into the Pacific Ocean in an effort to avoid onlookers.

Apparently, the animal was walking around downtown Seward — a city completely surrounded by National Parks — on Saturday evening when people began crowding around for pictures.

Sensing danger, the goat started climbing down nearby rocks in order to escape, but after jumping into the harbor for safety, it was unable to leave the water and subsequently drowned.

While its death was completely avoidable, State Troopers used the tragic event as an opportunity to promote wildlife preservation, saying:

"It is imperative that wildlife is given adequate space to be able to leave a congested area like downtown Seward. People not giving the animal space and getting close to take photos resulted in a wild animal dying for no cause."

Such a shame

Rest in peace, little guy.
