Male Alpine Ibex (Capra ibex) or Steinbock, Alpensteinbock, Niederhorn, Berner Oberland, Kanton of Berne, Switzerland. The Alpine ibex is certainly our most impressive wild goat. In the 19th century it was exstinct in Switzerland, but we have introduced them again in the Alps by steeling 6 of them from the Italiens and reinstalled them in the Swiss Alps.
