Actually they are Ibex's and the dam is in Italy.  It is funny how in a email the country and type of animal can change so quick.

 Check out this thread.

ya, the internet is like an extreme version of the  game "telephone". The more people that the story goes through, the more warped it becomes.

Two questions.

1.) What are they eating? Lichen?

2.) How many are dead in the bottom?

I'd be surprised if there are any down there.  They seem pretty fleet of foot....

Sheep and goats have

Sheep and goats have incredible footing... but it's not perfect. They do fall. During my internship over the summer I documented three falls my sheep. Only one was a lamb. I'm sure that dam has probably claimed atleast one overzealous animal.

Yeah one of the photos has

Yeah one of the photos has some 16+ goats, if they do this daily, I can't imagine they are always perfect.  I researched this a little bit more and its amazing where these photos have been posted.  Some claim they are eating weeds, others that the goats are licking rocks for salt.  I'm guessing its probably the later.

I ran across this video on youtube, quite the bit of balance (for the goat or the monkey).  I'm sure peta is upset.

That's amazing how the goat can spin around on the cup on the tight rope and then walk down the ladder.  WOW!
