Results of the investigations of changes in the number of hoof-animals in the Mountain Crimea in the period from 1980 to 2014 are presented in the article. It is found that the period of the animal numbers change is 7.5 years for red deer and 4.6 years for roe deer. The shortening of the period of the animal numbers change as compared with other populations is a defence mechanism under conditions of a continuous anthropogenic pressure.
