Help!

When I was a little kid one joke went, "How do you know if there is an elephant in your refrigerator?" Answer: "The footprints in the butter."

Now I have the same problem, but with Himalayan Tahr, and not in my fridge.

What does Himalayan Tahr hoofprints look like?

What does Himalayan Tahr droppings look like?

Pictures? Drawings? The Internet is mute on this subject.

I have looked at Internet photos and as far as I can see Tahrs have no feet, just fur like Tribbles.

Tracks make really poor soup. I would hazard a guess that they are very similar to other ungulates, probably closer to sheep and goats. They seem to share the same environment as mountain goats and bighorns.

Best I could do John, don't tend to focus on their feet!

From the photo: considerably bigger than deer; nowhere near as big as moose or elk (or caribou); hard exterior, soft centre, goat-like (might only see imprint of harder keratin); unlikely the dewclaws would present (unless in deep snow); narrow track, uneven stride.

All speculation, no proof, basically a guess, and not even a good one.
