Tatra Chamois, Slovakia

The chamois is a goat-antelope species native to mountains in Europe, and has also been introduced to the South Island of New Zealand. Some subspecies of chamois are strictly protected in the EU under the European Habitats Directive - one of them being the Tatra chamois (Rupicapra rupicapra tatrica), living in the Tatra Mountains in Slovakia and Poland and, unknown to many, the Low Tatras in Slovakia, where it was artificially introduced because of concerns of survivability in its native range. 
Another precious animal threatened by mankind, but much is being done to sustain it. Thanks Lubo :)
