Is This Really a Woolly Mammoth?

By Sam Gibbs on at

A Russian engineer was going about his business surveying the Siberian wilderness for roads when he came across what looked like a massive woolly mammoth trudging through the water.

At least, that’s how The Sun tells it. The bastion of quality British news consulted a paranormal writer who, of course, verified the video as genuine. I’m not so sure. It’s incredibly blurry, and I have to think that someone would have seen them if they were still roaming the wilds of Siberia. Besides, if you zoom in really close it looks like a bear carrying a fish.

My mind calls hoax, my heart hopes it’s not. What do you think dear readers? Ever wanted a pet mammoth? [YouTube]
