A construction crew has found what appear to be mammoth bones. These mammoth bones are at least 10,000 years old. The bones were found north of this
central Washington town and northeast of Yakima. Who knows how much information will be found from this find.
SELAH, Wash. (AP) _ A construction crew has unearthed what appear to be mammoth bones at least 10,000 years old north of this central Washington town
and northeast of Yakima, the company owner says.
Gary Fife of Selah said he and his crew were on lunch while building a private road about three weeks ago when he noticed some large bones protruding
from an embankment near where they had been digging.
At the request of the property owner, an archaeologist from Seattle made some initial tests which indicated the bones probably belong to a species of
mammoth, Fife said.

This is a very interesting find. I remember watching a television show about re-animating a mammoth because they found a frozen mammoth body. This
find is close enough! I wonder what they will learn from this discovery.
For those who do not know, a mammoth is an elephant-like creature that went extinct after the last ice age about 9,000 years ago.
