OGDEN — Utah's infamous "goat man" has been identified. The 57-year-old South Carolina man turned himself in Monday.

His story exploded in the media when officials from the Utah Division of Wildlife Resources notified the public of a man dressed as a goat, hanging out among wild goat herds on Ben Lomond Peak on Ogden. Their concern was that he could accidentally get shot by hunters.

Monday, on the advice of a friend who lives in Utah, the "goat man" came clean. He contacted DWR and identified himself as a hunter from South Carolina.

The man told officials he was testing out a new kind of hunting disguise and was told Utah was a good place to find goat herds.

"Goat man's" real name was not released.
