When did wild horses become extinct in Asia?

    Actually, they are not extinct right now, although they have been. The Przewalski’s Horse of Central and East Asia, a subspecies of the same species as the domesticated horses, has gone extinct around 1966, but a breeding program between zoos has successfully reintroduced the wild horses in Mongolia in 1985. IUCN Red List classifies them as critically endangered.
    Another subspecies of the horse, the Tarpan, is extinct and was last seen in 1909, and that was in captivity. It used to have a wide range from Spain to Central Russia.
