Is the Pyrenean ibex extinct?
The Pyrenean ibex (Capra pyrenaica pyrenaica) was a subspecies of the Iberian wild goat that went extinct in 2000.
Once found throughout the French, Spanish and Andorran Pyrenees, the population was severely thinned by hunting.
In 2009, scientists were able to clone a female Pyrenean ibex using DNA from preserved skin samples. Due to lung defects, the ibex died shortly after birth, according to The Telegraph.
