Siberia: 18,000-year-old frozen 'dog' stumps scientists


28 November 2019

Researchers are trying to determine whether an 18,000-year-old puppy found in Siberia is a dog or a wolf.

The canine - which was two months old when it died - has been remarkably preserved in the permafrost of the Russian region, with its fur, nose and teeth all intact.

DNA sequencing has been unable to determine the species.

Scientists say that could mean the specimen represents an evolutionary link between wolves and modern dogs.

1. Thank you, great info

Of course you need to quit using words like scientists and evolutionary or it will be dismissed as fake news by half of America, including the huge masses of ones that croon that life on the planet has been here for only 6000? years and that Dinosaurs and Humans existed at the same time..........

If there is a "God", may she Please Please Please help us out of this nightmare that we can't seem to wake up from.....

I would have loved to have watched Noah load two T-Rex's on his Ark........LOL
