The death-defying goats. Animals scale Italian lake’s near-vertical barrier to lick stones for their minerals
Photographer Paolo Seimandi, 34, captured the amusing moment the herd of alpine ibexes decided to scale the dam in the Gran Paradiso National Park in Northern Italy. The animals climb their way up the brick barrier to lick the stones for salts and minerals. Despite the steep angle of the dam, the goats are perfectly safe, able to hop around with ease.
