LETTER : Chamois lather

From The Lord Hunt of Llanfair Waterdine

Sir: Allow me, as a sensitive mountaineer, to point out in his cartoon in yesterday's edition (19 October), Michael Heath has wrongly classified a chamois as a goat. It is, in fact, the only European antelope. Mr Heath might have chosen, in his illustration of goats and quasi-goats, the ibex instead.

Yours sincerely,

John Hunt
