In this Sept. 6, 2018, photo, the head of an Ice Age wolf is seen after it was found during an expedition of the Mammoth Fauna Study Department at the Academy of Sciences of Yakutia near Belaya Gora, Abyysky region of Sakha Republic, Russia. Experts believe the wolf roamed the earth about 40,000 years ago, but thanks to Siberia's frozen permafrost its brain, fur, tissues and even its tongue have been perfectly preserved, as scientific investigations are underway after it was found in August 2018.

FILE - In this April 25, 2012 file photo, a herd of bison move through land controlled by the American Prairie Reserve south of Malta, Mont. Montana's Democratic governor and the Republican secretary of state who wants his job are locked in a constitutional dispute over a measure that could affect whether more bison could be moved to the reserve. Gov. Steve Bullock vetoed a bill that would have changed the definition of a wild bison. Opponents say the bill targets the conservation group trying to create a large bison reserve. Secretary of State Corey Stapleton says the bill should become law because the governor's veto letter missed a deadline to be sent to his office. (AP Photo/Matt Brown, File)
