Real or photoshopped???

If it's real, all I can say is "WOW".  Looks like it'd be hard to photoshop.  Apparantly they are Ibex, and it's a damn in Italy somewhere.  But, you know how the internet is....

Impressive... really doesn't

Impressive... really doesn't look much steeper than the hills the mountain goats and sheep live on around here.  Those suckers defy gravity!

I just got these pics in an email, was told it is Buffalo Bill Dam in Wyoming?  On the Shashone River?  Anybody from Wyoming see sheep side-hilling the Buffalo Bill?

I've seen it confirmed on

I've seen it confirmed on many, many websites, that it is actually in Italy and they are Ibex.  They actually have posted pics of the dam without the Ibex.  Here is a site that has more photos, and says it's the Cingino dam.

Here's photos and a google earth without the ibex.

Just look at the horns, you can tell they are not any type of sheep in N. America.

Either way, it's pretty "dam" cool......

That is crazy. If I didn't have to spend my summer tracking bighorn sheep I wouldn't believe it but nothing surprises me now.

Better have a guy in a boat below... they don't defy gravity after they're dead.    ;)
