Butt Out Mum

Every tired mum will know the feeling when their playful offspring get their goat.

But when these five youngsters start to kid around, sometimes mum just wants to butt out.

The five young Alpine Ibex goats - born with three weeks to four different mothers at Salzburg zoo, Austria - have already found their feet on a rock face that mimics the mountain peaks they are found on in the wild.

And when they've had enough of the high life, they're perfectly happy to climb all over mum too.

"They are amazing sure-footed and never seem to fall," said one keeper.

"When they are older the males will have distinctive, long, curled horns and even when they're just a few days old the kids start testing out their butting strength," they added.
