What do mountain goats eat?

Mountain goats live so close to the clouds that most predators, or natural enemies, that want to catch one have a long climb ahead of them.

Wolves and cougars are the two main predators of mountain goats. Grizzly bears also occasionally attack them.

In addition, golden eagles have been known to knock baby mountain goats off of mountain ledges. The baby goats are killed or seriously injured in the fall, and then the eagles are able to eat them.

And, what does a mountain goat eat? Mountain goats are browsers, which means that they eat a variety of leaves and other vegetation.
