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.

"China's Tibet" How can a country just call another country their own? This is like India trying to call Nepal one of its states. Why can't these big rich countries be happy with what they already have? Why can't China just be happy with having a neighbouring country in Tibet? Tibet and Nepal are not rich but they still have the right to call their country their own and not a part of their big powerful neighbours. Why can't Nepal and Tibet hold their own sovereignty? Shame on china and India.
