Put my vote for goat, too. They seem to have many characteristics that are goat-like.

They ar not elk. Elk have branched horns like deer. They look a little like mountain goats. Do you have mountains in Ohio?

In southern Ohio they do. But not big mountains. Where these have been found are in an eastern suburb of Cleveland. No mountains up here.

Crytozoology was never my strong point, Goat family certainly fits the billy though :)

In my opinion, those are goats. In any case, definitely not moose or elk. As someone else stated, from their condition I would also venture that they've either escaped from or been purposely released by someone. Not only are goats BIG-TIME efficient escape artists, but many people have been known to get into them, change their minds, & leave them to fend for themselves. Sad but true. Although I don't have the time to go through every breed on the following list, you may find something on this extremely thorough & well-photographed site that resembles your "wild" Ohio herd. You'll also see that this site states that unlike sheep (domesticated, not wild-breed sheep), escaped domesticated goats are more likely to survive as ferals. Enjoy!
