Feral Goat

Capra hircus. Nature’s Window, Kalbarri.

Although looking pretty majestic, feral goats are a pretty big problem within Australia. They create all manner of issues for native fauna and natural (and agricultural) landscapes, competing for resources, and damaging vegetation/soil structure (increased erosion through overgrazing and trampling). They are also pretty terrifying when they suddenly appear and stare you down (especially when you look away for a second to grab a camera, and two more have appeared out of nowhere).
