Local dogs has made repeated attempts on mammoth to try it out. The efforts of the workers of a mammoth defended, but arrogant dogs has bitten off a piece that talked about the fact that mammoth is still well preserved. The mammoth was taken to Leningrad, and in the course of research it became clear that he was only 6 months old, a small injured leg, fell into a hole with water, could not get out of it and froze, and permafrost became a natural preservative
