This video from Washington state in the USA says about itself:
Prior to the eruption of Mount St. Helens, few people realized there were mountain goats living in the area. While that population was likely wiped out by the blast, anecdotal sightings of these high-climbing, sure-footed mammals began to crop up in the 1990s. By 2014, Gifford Pinchot National Forest biologist Mitch Wainwright had launched the first official mountain goat survey and Cowlitz tribal members looked forward to a time when they could collect and weave tufts of goat hair into ceremonial blankets. Originally broadcast in 2016.
