How many big horn sheep are left?

    Current estimates put the bighorn sheep population of U.S. around 800, and the population of Mexico at 2,000-2,500. Despite being listed in the California State Endangered Species Act of 1971, their numbers have continued to decline due to disease, habitat loss, and predation by mountain lions (though this is only a problem when populations are already small; predation is not significant to normal-sized populations).

    In the 1800’s there was said to be around 1.5 million, but now the number is only about 3% of that.
