    Incredible pictures show puppy found preserved in permafrost for 12,000 years in 'perfect condition'
    The dog, believed to be the sibling of the world's oldest mummified dog, was discovered by archaeologists in Siberia

    Preserved: The dog was frozen in permafrost for more than 12,000 years
    These awe-inspiring images show a dog found preserved in Siberia's permafrost for more than 12,000 years.

    Scientists discovered the puppy, which they say is "in perfect condition", and believe it is the sibling of another mummified puppy found nearby four years ago.

    The latest discovery was made by archaeologists looking for proof that our ancestors tamed dogs as far back as thousands of years ago.

    Its owners may even have been woolly mammoth hunters, it is believed.

    Clearly identifiable: Scientists say the dog is in "perfect condition"
    Still caked in mud, the animal was found around 6ft from the permafrost grave of the puppy unearthed four years ago.

    Archaeologists believe the puppies were killed by a sudden a landslide on a bank of River Syalakh in the remote Sakha Republic, also known as Yakutia, Russia.

    Sergei Fedorov, from the Mammoth Museum in Yakutsk, told the Siberian Times: "The condition of our new find is perfect.

    "It is preserved from nose to tail, including the hair. You can see the hair on the paw on the picture."

    Both puppies were sealed in the permafrost which led to them being mummified.

    "The find of the new remains was pure luck," said Fedorov, adding the front paws and head were visible just 6ft from the location of the first find.

    "We had no inkling we would get it."

    The aim of this summer's expedition to find evidence of ancient dog-owners who might have been woolly mammoth hunters.

    The purpose "was to search for the traces of human activity there, to seek evidence that the first puppy was a dog tamed by ancient people", he said.

    Tragic end: Scientists believe the dog was killed by a sudden a landslide
    And the expedition found "tools made of bone", indicating the presence of man.

    Archaeologist Alexander Kandyba also found "the bones of an animal with traces of butchering and of fire".

    Scientists will remove the mud at their laboratory in Yakutsk before examining the ancient animal.

    Discovery: The dog was found in the Sakha Republic, Siberia Russia
    DNA tests on the first puppy showed it to be a dog, rather than a wolf, and it was dated as 12,400 years old.

    Dr Mietje Germonpre, from the palaeontology department of the Royal Belgian Institute of Natural Sciences, inspected the remains of the first puppy and called the find "unique" and "the oldest mummified dog in the world".

    Team: The archaeologists were searching for proof that our ancestors tamed dogs
    "It's amazing. In other museums around the world you will only find the remains of adult dogs, but this is a puppy," she said.

    "All external signs and scan results indicate that it is a primitive dog, and at the moment it is the most ancient one found in northern Siberia.



    [​IMG]
    Probe: Scientists will remove the mud at their laboratory before examining the dog
    "The oldest dog remains were found in the Goya cave in Belgium, and were 36,500 years old, and there are many finds dating to about 26,000 years ago --- but they are not so well preserved.

    "Here we see the skin and hair and even the internal organs survived."



    [​IMG]
    Connection: The puppy was found just metres from where another mummified dog was discovered
    She added: "There are two main theories.

    "The first is that dogs arrived near sites where humans lived and picked up the scraps and gradually they co-existed.



    "The second version talks about the active involvement of man, where the people themselves were the initiator of the relationship, and brought the puppies to their home and trained them.

    "The data that I have accumulated speaks in favour of the latter theory."

    Anyone who introduces politics into a cool NON POLITICAL thread like this deserves to be banned.

    Yes, and Don and Howard would quickly broker a book deal, so Beth could tell the amazing tail about "Frozen Freddy".

    Wait. They forgot to explain exactly how they arrived at these ages. Oh yes, that's because they are guessing.

    People have no idea how subtle this kind of brainwashing is and how many times a day they see/hear/read these things or that it is the real reason most of these article are even published. Thousands and thousands of times throughout our lives we are fed these imaginary dates. over and over and over. it is no wonder people mock the truth.
