(Newser) – Things were not looking good for 10 mountain goats in the French Alps: As concerned onlookers watched (and videotaped), it appeared the Chamois goats would be overtaken by an avalanche. Six of the animals outran the oncoming snow, but four of them appeared to be overcome by it, the Telegraph reports. Then, applause from the onlookers: The goats escaped and were spotted again as they re-joined their buddies. The group filming the ordeal was made up of skiers, the Independent reports, and they had been speculating that the goats must be dead before they emerged safe.
