THIS is the moment two mountain goats in Spain locked horns before one plunged to its death. 

The two Spanish ibex were pictured by 53-year-old off-duty cop Agus Nuleagus at the Sierra de Grados National Park in Castille y Leon.

The police officer said: “I’ve spent three years looking for a fight like this in a high mountain area with snow and in a clean environment.

“I have been through adverse weather conditions including rain and snow storms as well as sub zero temperatures.”

The fight to the death was over a herd of female goats and lasted for 20 minutes.

Nuleagus added: “It was very strange to see them fighting on the cliff edge. They fought until one gave up and jumped off the edge.”
