How many Big horn sheep are left in the wild?

    Today, it appears as though fewer than 70,000 big horn sheep still exist in the wild, with about 500 living in Yellowstone Park. Populations are still being re-established after extirpation in some American regions in 1925.

    Bighorn Sheep were hunted to near extinction in the 1800s, but thanks to conservation efforts of the 20th century, their population has risen again to healthy levels — although one subspecies of bighorns went extinct before action was taken: Ovis canadensis auduboni.  Today bighorn sheep fall into the International Union for Conservation of Nature category of “Least Concern”, meaning they have a large population.
