“The paper, "Resolving a zoological mystery: the kouprey is a real species," published in the Proceedings of the Royal Society B, can be downloaded here.”
“The kouprey, which is now the national animal of Cambodia, may have originated as a domestic hybrid, between banteng and zebu cattle, that later became wild.”
“The researchers had predicted, based on a study of kouprey anatomy, that the kouprey was a hybrid form and would show mitochondrial DNA similar to that of the banteng.”
“Discovered by Western scientists only in 1937, the kouprey was the last large mammal to enter the biology books.”
“The kouprey is a candidate for domestication and has important potential as breeding stock.”
“The Siamese crocodile, the banteng, a species of wild cattle, and a wild ox known as the kouprey are each Critically Endangered.”
“If the kouprey or Cambodian wild ox Bos sauvalis (EN), were to be rediscovered on the Cambodian border in the Dongrak mountains which are a continuation of the Phanom Dongrak range, the Parks would provide suitable habitat for its reintroduction.”
“A recent genetic analysis of kouprey samples shows that, despite recent arguments that the animal was a hybrid, it is in fact a distinct species.”
“Officials cite the region's ethereal landscapes and its wildlife, including exotic birds, elephants and possibly kouprey, the mysterious and rare wild forest cow believed to live in northern Cambodia and surrounding areas.”
“The kouprey probably is globally extinct, although intermittent reports from remote areas of northern and eastern Cambodia keep hopes alive.”
