Yes, this "woolly mammoth" thing is a Himalayan Tahr. Still on Table Mountain after many attempts to eradicate them.
Wikipedia: Himalayan_Tahr

Was out climbing last Saturday between Plattekloof and the Cable Way.
Saw this feral Himilayan Tahr which obviously is one of several that escaped the eradication effort in 2005.
I guess they will have to try again.
Position: -33.958047780636, 18.40711005174
Altitude: 915.5m

I see others have been spotted in the same area last year.
