Wild yaks endangered in Nepal

Wildlife experts have warned of possible extinction of wild yak in Nepal, as the traces of the shaggy-haired ox are hardly seen in wild.

During a nearly two-month field study at the end of 2015, researchers found only one wild yak in this area.

Poaching is a major risk to them.

Listed in the IUCN red list of threatened species, wild yak were only found in India, China and Nepal.
