The Algerian gazelle ( Eudorcas rufina, formerly Gazella rufina ), also known as Red Gazelle, is an extinct gazelle, who has lived in northern Algeria and Morocco. It was probably native to the wetter regions in the northern Atlas Mountains.


The last known Algerian gazelle was killed in 1894, since then, the species is considered lost. Formally it was declared extinct in 1994. Today there are three museum specimens of this species in Paris and London.
