WATCH: Goats Escape Avalanche
By Scott Neuman
Updated: 7 months ago

Gawker brings us this video posted on Monday of a herd of chamois goats that make a seemingly miraculous escape from an avalanche on an Alpine mountain face. It occurs in the Rhone-Alpes near Pralognan-la-Vanoise, not far from the border between France and Italy.

Skiers watching (and filming) can be heard expressing concern over the fate of the goats, who split into two groups one that makes a relatively quick escape and another that gets hammered by the charging snow, only to emerge moments later, apparently unscathed.
