shared by wildphotons"I never did find out how this Mountain Goat, Oreamnos americanus, managed to get down. I was there for more than an hour and it kept licking away at the mineral in the rock. It was a sheer drop below, there was no apparent way up or sideways."
Maybe it was trying to lick a tunnel through the mountain?
