Zabaykalsky Krai , Krasnokamensk

Monument to Siberian marmots - tarbagans

Памятник суркам-табарганам
In Krasnokamensk a monument was erected to exterminated Siberian marmots, once the most common inhabitants of Daurian steppes. The idea was to remind about the tragic fate of marmots that had been annihilated in masses for decades as potential carriers of plague. A real chemical war was held against marmots — chemical warfare agents were used. In the course of twenty years about a million marmots were killed in Dauria.
