wild himalayan goats

Photos of a herd of wild long-haired Himalayan goats (India).­

This herd of wild mountain goats decided to take a break and lie down on the warm asphalt of a remote mountain road in the late afternoon.­

They looked great with their long fleece, and they were not shy (they do not have much natural predators).­

So I stayed with them for a while and tried to take good photos, until they decided to go back up in their mountain.­

The herd had about 40 or 50 animals of all ages.­ They were definitely wild, but they are of the domestic goat species (Capra aegagrus hircus).­ I do not think that they are feral i.­e.­ domestic animals returned to the wild.­

I think those may be the Pashmina (also called Changthangi) breed of long haired Himalayan goats.­

Please post a Comment is you know more about those Himalayan wild goats.­
