Stuart’s Daily Word Spot: Ibex

Alpine IbexImage via Wikipedia
Ibex: noun - a goat antelope, Capra ibex, bearing thick curved and ridged horns and a beard, living mostly in mountainous regions of NE Africa and central Asia, although other species live in other mountainous areas.

‘Walter, a hunter of game for trophies, had hoped to shoot a big cat and have its head on his wall, but the native guides had scared them all away and he was forced to make do with an Ibex, which they herded into his sights.’
