The man has played a much larger role than previously thought in the management of the cave bear to extinction, according to new evidence unveiled last week.

The giant bear, which is mostly lived in Asia and Europe, and were driven from the caves by human hunters thousands of years ago, on the way to extinction, the researchers found.

“We have seen such a dramatic decline in the population of the cave-bear, from 40,000 years ago, coinciding with the arrival of anatomically modern humans in Europe, University of Zurich, switzerland Professor, Verena Schuenemann, who led the study, told BBC News.

In order to complete their work, the scientists have analyzed the mitochondrial DNA extracted from cave bear bones, which were collected in several European countries.

The bears, who are completely extinct about 24,000 years ago, had something to do with the shrinkage of the foodstuff and the onset of the last ice age.

“This is the most obvious evidence is that we are so far away that the man may have played a major role in the extinction of the cave bear,” Schuenemann was added.

In spite of the results, the discussion of what, exactly, has led us to the cave of the bear, and the extinction of the human activity, changes in the environment, or a combination of both – will continue to be.

The study, which was published in Scientific Reports.
