Woolly mammoth discovery in Michigan, USA

This 5 October 2015 video from the USA says about itself:

Scientists excavated a nearly complete mammoth skeleton in Michigan, discovered by a soybean farmer on his land.

According to the Washington Post, farmer James Bristle of Chelsea, Michigan, was digging in his soybean field when he thought he discovered a completely buried fence post. That turned out to be one of the mammoth’s ribs.

University of Michigan professor Daniel Fisher confirmed the find on Wednesday, and spent the whole day extracting the site. Fisher thinks the mammoth is between 11,000 and 15,000 years old, and had been butchered by early humans and left in a pond to preserve its meat.

Woolly mammoth skeleton unearthed by Michigan farmers

3 October 2015

Two farmers in Michigan made an astonishing discovery when they unearthed the remains of a woolly mammoth while digging in a soybean field.

Experts say it is one of the most complete sets ever found in the state.

University of Michigan researchers say there is evidence the mammoth lived 11,700-15,000 years ago.

THE MAMMOTH COULD BE MAKING A COMEBACK “Dr. George Church, a molecular biologist at Harvard University who is working on such projects, estimates that a variation of the first new woolly mammoth (which disappeared some 4,000 years ago) may be born as soon as seven years from now.” [HuffPost]
