Why has yak become an endangered species?



  1. 0 Votes

    Though the domesticated version of the animal is still plentiful, the larger wild yak population has been slowly declining due to over hunting. Much like the wild buffalo that used to roam the plains of America, the fur was widely sought after by hunters, and has now landed it on the endangered list. Some speculate extinction, but this fate can be avoided for the wild yak if proper laws and sanctuaries are put into place to protect what little population is left in the Tibetan Plateau. The wild yak travel mostly now in small herds that are scattered amongst the area, and much be consolidated for protection and healthy procreation.
