@MBraedley No, because this guy is asking if they can through the end portal, not the nether portal – DatEpicCoderGuyWhoPrograms May 16 '14 at 15:28

Yes, they can.

Here is a link to a youtube video showing it happening.

This is also referenced in this wiki

Mobs will enter the portal (As well as the exit portal) similar to the player.

We didn't see any of the mobs on the other side of the portal though. – Gigazelle May 16 '14 at 17:45
@Gigazelle Well, I can confirm that they will go to the other side of the portal. – DatEpicCoderGuyWhoPrograms May 16 '14 at 21:30
This video shows absolutely nothing, just from me clicking on it. After watching through the whole thing, it just shows the mobs falling through the portal to the lava and then dying. – waifu May 17 '14 at 2:02
