Dam goats

They apparently traverse the wall of the dam to lick salt or other minerals from the stonework.

Photo found here, via Reddit (credit unknown).  YouTube has a variety of videos of these guys.  And a hat tiip to Dan for a Snopes link with additional location info and links to more photos.
