After the battle

A large Spanish Ibex (Capra pyrenaica victoriae) male resting on a granite boulder, showing a deep bleeding wound in its forehead, no doubt product of a fight with another male, during the rut. He also had blood stains in its horns, so its oponent did not leave unscathed either.

Un gran macho montés o Ibice Iberico (Capra pyrenaica victoriae) descansando en el granito. Muestra una herida aun sangrante en la frente, recibida sin duda en una de las luchas de la berrea. Tenía sus cuernos manchados de sangre, con lo que sabemos que su oponente no salió ileso.
