The facts about Mountain Goats – Wiki The mountain goat (Oreamnos americanus), also known as the Rocky Mountain goat, is a large-hoofed mammal found only in North America. Despite its vernacular name, it is not a member of Capra, the genus that includes the wild goat, Capra aegagrus, from which the domestic goat is derived. A subalpine to alpine species, it is a sure-footed climber commonly seen on cliffs and ice. The myths – Wiki In Greek mythology, a satyr (UK /?sæt?/, US /?se?t?r/, Greek ??????? satyros, pronounced [sátyros]) is one of a troop of male companions of Pan and Dionysus with goat-like (caprine) features, including a goat-tail, goat-like ears, and sometimes a goat-like phallus. In Roman Mythology there is a similar concept with goat-like features, the faun being half-man, half-goat. Greek-speaking Romans often use the Greek term saturos when referring to the Latin faunus, and eventually syncretize the two. The female “Satyresses” were a late invention of poets — that roamed the woods and mountains. In myths they are often associated with pipe-playing.

She is the host of “Winchester Daily Passion” which airs on the Pursuit Channel, available on DISH and DirectTV. According to The Telegraph, she describes herself as a “hardcore huntress.” I hope someone has the balls to let that station know what they are perpetuating. As of publication, over 11,000 individuals have signed a petition asking the government of South Africa to “deny future entry” to Bachman, despite her actions being legal in the African country. “Melissa Bachman has made a career out of hunting wildlife, for pure sport,” the petition says. “She is an absolute contradiction to the culture of conservation, this country prides itself […]
