According to Indian media, the first Indian gray wolf appeared in Bangladesh in 70 years, having been beaten to death by farmers after stalking their cattle in early June.
According to the International Union for Conservation of Nature (UCN), the Indian gray wolf was finally seen in 1949, since then it has been constantly on the brink of extinction.
Locals near the Sundarbans – the world's largest mangrove forest between India and Bangladesh – captured and killed the wolf because it attacked their cattle.
Y.V Jhala, an expert at the Indian Institute of Wildlife, affirmed: "With the images sent, we confirm this is an Indian gray wolf."
"There are still about 3,000 Indian gray wolves living in the country all over the country, but they have gradually disappeared from populations living in northern and northwestern Bangladesh in the 1940s."

Anwarul, a zoologist at Dhaka University, collected DNA samples from the gray wolf's corpse to search for traces of their species.
"It's sad that it was beaten to death. We need to conduct further investigations to find out whether it goes alone or in a group."
In fact, it died at the hands of farmers from the beginning of June but until Sunday, the new image came to the experts.
A variety of animals – including striped hyenas, swamp deer and black buckets – have disappeared from Bangladesh in the past few decades, mainly due to human impact.
