DUSHYANT PARASHER – ‘A Rare One’
‘A Rare One’ The Himalayan serow Capricornis thar is a goat?antelope native to the Himalaya, classified as ‘Near Threatened’ by the IUCN. This individual cocks its head bemusedly at an enthusiastic Dushyant Parasher, who, during a casual February evening walk in Sal Tal, Uttarakhand, spotted the goat?antelope, which he initially thought was a cow! This happens to be one of the few images of a wild Himalayan serow taken in India.
