A bit of a different look that I kind of like. This was taken back in August near the top of Mount Evans, Colorado. The goats weren’t particularly cooperative on this day and wanted to keep their distance but I managed a few nice captures.
Mountain Goats are actually considered an invasive species here in Colorado as they are not native to the Centennial State having been brought here in the early 20th century as a tourist attraction and game animal. Unfortunately Mountain Goats can carry diseases which are deadly to our state’s official animal, the Big Horn Sheep. When the goats roam into sheep territory, they are often killed to prevent them from infecting the sheep.
