This article is largely copied from I think the author of that webpage allows copying if he is properly credited, but this is still not good practice. Do we need to rewrite the article to be in our own words? --Danaman5 06:59, 2 March 2006 (UTC)

No, because I started the article and I also created The Extinction Website, including the Portuguese Ibex page you've mentioned. (This does not mean that texts on my website are free of copyright, only I can post text from there on Wikipedia.) So no need to rewrite it. Pmaas 20:37, 2 March 2006 (UTC)
Ah, my mistake. Carry on, then. --Danaman5 20:46, 2 March 2006 (UTC)

In the section on extinction, there's an entire uncited paragraph about possible alternative (non-human) causes of extinction. Such as "grey wolves." Seriously? Grey wolves are native to Iberia and coexisted for hundreds of thousands of years with the ibex without either going extinct. Unless the wolves suddenly acquired firearms, it's ridiculous to attribute the ibex extinction to them. This dubious claim also has no citation, like the rest of that paragraph.
