Description

For thousands of years the Taigan of Kirghiz has been extremely helpful in hunting. Now that hunting is no longer considered the way to survive, Taigans are really close to sinking into oblivion. The current number of Taigans amounts to several hundred species. This relic breed is on the verge of extinction.
