Help Identify This Animal


Curly horned sheep? Mountain goat? Mutant deer? No one knows for sure. Whatever they are, they're roaming the woods in Geauga County

Any clue as to what these animals are ? To me they look like a cross between a Moose and a deer.

They are Goeep. or Sheoat. They enjoy Conan O'Brien shows.... upper class malls and dry cheese.
They HATE Letterman, Wal-Mart and unions.

They can be found in lower elevations.

How big are they, if you know. My first thought was also of elk but the horns/antlers on the one isn't like an elk's.

There are several goat like qualities about these animals. The horns, the body conformation, the tail area and the stance are very goat like. They are not mountain goats, they look look like domesticated goats. They also look well nourished.

From what i understand of goat behavior, they do not like change, especially being moved from one farm to another. If goats are moved, special care must be taken to secure/fence/pen the animals for the first few days at their new lodgings. If not secured, they will bolt. My guess is that these animals were recently moved and escaped their new caretakers.

I just plugged the "Elk" idea into google and got this: Google Image Result for http://www.hickerphoto.com/data/media/170/elk_pictures_t0850.jpg

looks about the closest of all the pics.

but I don`t think it IS an Elk though.
