Only a population undoubtedly survives, in the Düzlerçami hunting reserve within the Termessos National Park in southern Turkey, although it is now largely fenced.
Other populations in Turkey, in Ayvalik Adalar, Gokova, Adakoy and Psokas Stavros-tis-seem to have disappeared in recent years.
Certainly, the fossils of Gamos in Rhodes go back to the Neolithic, and there are no signs of prolonged periods of domestication, so it could be considered a native population.
The Romans introduced ladies in southern England in the first century after Christ.
The species was introduced into the Western Mediterranean by the Phoenicians, and in the center and north of Europe for the Romans and the Normans.
However, most populations currently existing in Europe are the result of recent introductions (with the exception of some older ones, for example, in the United Kingdom, and in Castel Porziano in Italy).
In addition, most European populations are fenced and are strictly controlled, therefore there are few populations truly released (some are in the United Kingdom).
In most places the Gamo is managed as in hatcheries, since almost all of its current geographical distribution area is attributable to human beings.
In Portugal, for example, most specimens occur within closed areas, such as parks and private hunting areas, and apart from a few dispersed individuals there is no wild population.
Most European animals (with the exception of Termessos National Park, and Rhodes) are essentially descendants of domestic gams, possessing color varieties considered a domestication result.
A herd of historical value ladies is located in the Ottenby Reserve in Öland, Sweden, where in mid-1600, Karl Gustav X erected a stone wall around him to enclose a real flock, which still exists.
Another historical herd is that of the Phoenix Park, Ireland, composed of 400 to 450 copies that descend from the original herd introduced there in the 1660 decade.
Of particular interest is the population of the Mortimer forest on the border between England and Wales, where most of the population has its own characteristics with the longest fur and different ears.
A significant number of the Ladies of the Dean forest and in Epping Forest are from the black variety.
More recently, the species has been introduced in many countries around the world, in many of them it became considered a plague.
