Mountain goat reunites with baby after being separated

The Needles Highway was the scene of an emotional reunion between a Mountain Goat and her baby Friday afternoon

A baby mountain goat got separated from his mom on the Needles Highway when he climbed to a place he couldn’t get down from.

Mom was separated from baby by the needles tunnel and a row of cars blocking the tunnel entrance.

Eventually, bystanders stepped in and stopped traffic, allowing the tunnel to clear.

This gave the mom the opportunity to come back and lead her baby to safety.

There was applause, cheering, and even a few tears as mom and baby were once again reunited.
