Goats 1, Avalanche 0


Goats have evolved to be able to thrive in frigid temperatures and dangerous environments - and yet we're still shocked (and relieved) to see this herd survive a terrifying avalanche in the French Alps.

A team of skiers captured this video of goats running for their lives as snow tumbled down the mountain. The herd breaks in two, and miraculously, both groups escape the snowslide by the skin of their teeth. Whew!

We're happy to see the goats make it out alive, but even more pleased to hear the concerned skiers' investment in the animals' lives, and celebration when they knew they survived.
