Woolly Mammoth Spotted In Siberia?
February 10, 2012 2 Comments
A large creature is seen crossing a river in the Chukotka Autonomous Okrug region of Siberia. The Sun reports that a Russian government worker shot the video and claims it shows a creature that looks a lot like a Wooly Mammoth.
Than again, it could just be a bear.
But if you watch the video closely, you will see that what is supposed to be the creature’s trunk, or possibly its tusks, appears to be quite flaccid. Some viewers speculate that the furry creature in the video is nothing more than a bear carrying a large fish in its mouth. Others have surmised that it is an elephant, the mammoth’s genetic cousin, lost in the woods.
There is some historical evidence to tantalize cryptozoologists. It turns out that some mammoths actually did survive beyond the extinction of their brethren, living on Wrangel Island off the coast of Siberia until about 3,500 years ago.
I’m not saying that I believe that this is an actual Woolly Mammoth, but the video is quite intriguing.
