The wife and stepson of Bob Boardman, the hiker killed by a mountain goat near  Hurricane Ridge last year, filed a wrongful-death lawsuit today against the National Park Service, according to a news release from the family’s attorney.

The lawsuit, filed in U.S. District Court in Tacoma, accuses the Park Service of failing to remove or kill an animal it knew was dangerous. The Park Service last week rejected a $10 million claim by Boardman’s family.
