About White Yaks
White Yaks are found mainly in Tibet, but they are also
found occasionally in other regions of China. White Yaks were once considered a
divine animal. Sometimes they were used a sacrifice, but before slaying a White
Yak worshipers would read a lecture 300 times.
Tibetans raise White Yaks for meat, milk, and hides. The skin is good material for leather products
and Tibetans use it to make tent, rope and bags. The horns are made into combs.
The bones are used to make bone glue. The tail and hair are used to make blankets,
clothes, and stage props. And the dung is used for fuel. Plus White Yaks are the
main traffic tool used to climb snow mountains, especially in rural areas.
