National News // March 5, 2018

Locals in a Valais village have launched a search for some missing goats which are facing starvation on the slopes.

The animals were spotted by a snow-shoer above Ausserbinn. He says the animals appeared emaciated and one may already be dead.   

Locals say the animals should have come down from the mountain in the autumn and are part of a larger herd.

Fog is hampering search efforts, but the searchers say they hope to get the animals down to safety.
