According to Middendorf (1869), in the mid-19th century moose were occasionally documented along the banks of the Nizhnyaya Tunguska River. However, Maak (1887), whose expedition in 1854-55 visited the Vilyuy River starting not far from the Nizhnyaya Tunguska River that flows east to the Lena River, reported that moose were absent in the area and local people had no knowledge of them.
