The Pyrenean Ibex has one of the more interesting stories among extinct animals, since it was the first species to ever be brought back into existence via cloning, only to go extinct again just seven minutes after being born due to lung failure. It was native to the Pyrenees, a mountain range in Andorra, France and Spain. It was still abundant in the fourteenth century (Day 1981). The Pyrenean ibex’s population declined due to a “slow but continuous persecution”. The last one died in 2000.

The Sixth Extinction - Species Info - Pyrenean Ibex (Capra pyrenaica pyrenaica)

The extinction of the Pyrenean ibex was a combination of habitat destruction, environmental factors & heavy poaching.  The last natural Pyrenean ibex died in 2000, which officially marked the extinction of this species.  However, a cloned ibex was created from skin samples that were taken from the last Pyrenean ibex.  The clone's birth was in 2009 but it died shortly  after from lung complications.  Regardless, the Pyrenean ibex is now extinct.
