"At first we thought it was a reindeer's carcass, but after it thawed and fell down we saw a horn on its upper jaw and realized it must be a rhino," Alexander 'Sasha' Banderov, the hunter who made the discovery, told the Times. "The part of the carcass that stuck out of the ice was eaten by wild animals, but the rest of it was inside the permafrost and preserved well."

I can see the Stieff or Vermont Teddy Bear companies making a stuffed "baby rhino" toy. The STieff one will have little buttons in the ears

Ill wager that the radiocarbon date will be around 8 to 8.5 X10^3 ybp.

That number is a unique stadial value from lots of Siberian megafossils. (The number needs to be more closely assessed because theres a few radiocarbon "plateaus" in the Siberian/Kamchatka/E Siberian Sea areas. Reasons for these are still being chased down but it seems at least to correspond to some huge "wet gas" shale deposits .
