Prehistoric poop reveals early holocene bighorn sheep on Tiburon Island
Science 2.0 via WSF
Genetic analysis of ancient poop found off the coast of Mexico suggests bighorn sheep may be native to Tiburón Island, the largest island in the Gulf of California and Mexico. Bighorn sheep were not thought to inhabit Tiburón Island prior to their introduction in 1975 but scientists discovered fossilized dung in the mountains of Tiburón Island that challenges that assumption. Scientists compared the pellet-shaped poop to fecal pellets of other large mammals and extracted DNA to sequence and determine the origin.

Experts voice alarm over survival of local bighorn sheep
East County Magazine
Could big energy projects proposed in East County lead to the decimation of federally endangered Peninsular Bighorn Sheep? From 1972 to the present, the Carrizo Gorge band of these bighorns has plummeted from about 120 sheep to less than 40. "Off-road vehicles, trespassing cattle, poaching in the 1960s and 1970s, drought, disease and Mountain Lion predation have worked together to push this population to the edge. We hope we can save this group before it is too late," Mark Jorgensen, adviser to the Bighorn Institute and former superintendent of Anza-Borrego Desert State Park wrote in the Desert News.
