Monument to Siberian marmots - tarbagans
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.
