57,000-Year-Old ‘Wolf Mummy’ Found In Canada

Researchers have found a perfectly preserved 57,000-year-old ‘wolf mummy’ in Canada’s Yukon.

The female pup is “the most complete wolf specimen ever found from the Ice Age”, according to one scientist.

So complete, in fact, that even the contents of her stomach were still intact – fish, which researchers say means ancient wolves subsisted on aquatic life rather than bison or other land-based prey.

Scientists believe the 7-week-old was killed and “freeze-dried” when her den collapsed.

If you could bring back one extinct species, which would it be?
