In Yakutia, scientists are researching the carcass of a buffalo who died 9 thousands of years ago.

In Yakutia, scientists began to study the internal organs of a bison that lived on the territory of the modern republic about 9 thousand years ago. The remains of the animal were discovered in 2011 by members of the Yukagir tribal community, known for its other find - the impeccably preserved remains of the Yuki mammoth. Bison was found on the shore of a lake in the north of the Ust-Yansky region.

“The discovery is of great value for science, because it is the first copy of a bison of such high preservation. We established that the bison lived nine thousand years ago, at the very beginning of the Holocene epoch, died at the age of about four years. By that time the mammoths had already become extinct, but the buffalo were still living. Thorough research, which has now begun, will answer many questions, including the question of why the bison died out, ”said Albert Protopopov, Candidate of Biological Sciences, head of the study of mammoth fauna of the RS (Y) Academy of Sciences.
