Prey abundant at individual cameras includes hog (Sus scrofa), deer (Odocoileus virginianus and Odocoileus hemionus), elk (Cervus elaphus), coyote (Canis lantrans), javelina (Pecari tajacu), cow (Bos taurus), bobcat (Lynx rufus), and aoudad (Ammotragus
The first wave of dispersal would correspond to the latest Late Villafranchian, in paleoenvironments dominated by open dry grasslands and several wooded areas, and being associated to several other incoming species, mainly of Asian origin, such as Ammotragus
europaeus or Equus sussenbornensis.
La seleccion de los sitios prioritarios para el transplante de cimarrones fue basado en el potencial de contacto con borregos domesticos y cabras, y exoticos ferales como los aoudads (Ammotragus
lervia), y la cantidad de la conjuncion de terreno de escape y disponibilidad de agua.
The fauna of these areas includes goats (Capra hircus), Barbary sheep or aoudad (Ammotragus
lervia), and antelopes such as the gazelles (Gazella), addax (Addax nasomaculatus), oryx (Oryx), dik-diks (Madoqua), cobs (Kobus kob), kudus (Tragelaphus strepsiceros, T.
Aoudad or barbary sheep, Ammotragus
lervia (Pallas, 1777) is endemic to the mountain regions of North Africa throughout the Sahara (Brentjes, 1980).
His scientific name is Ammotragus
lervia; the genus Ammotragus

The endemic Iberian wild goat Capra pyrenaica and the exotic aoudad Ammotragus
; lervia are two of the most popular big game species in Spain.
Contact with domestic livestock and exotic sheep species (e.g., Ammotragus
lervia) should be minimized or eliminated to prevent disease transmission, and interspecific competition (Douglas & Leslie 1999; Krausman et al.

Likewise the aoudad, genus and species Ammotragus
One possible threat to the bighorn, and perhaps also to the mule deer (Odocoileus hemionus) is the aoudad (Ammotragus
lervia), an introduced species which is now well established in the Davis Mountains, and which appears to be extending its range in the direction of the Beach Mountains.
