Running free again!

A scene from a hundred years ago, Przewalski’s horses running free on the steppes again in Hustai National Park. After disappearing from the wild in the 1960s, this rare wild hose was reintroduced to the wild in 1992 and subsequently, following breeding from a few captive individuals descended from wild animals captured around 1900.
