WHAT if you dug up the ground outside your home and found a dead elephant?

What if it was a really big and very old one too? Farmer James Brittle in the state of Michigan (密歇根州), US, had just such an experience!

Earlies this month, when he dug up the soya field in his farm, he found some really big bones.

He called experts from the University of Michigan and they later found out that the bones belonged to a mammoth that lived perhaps 15,000 years ago. The two tusks were really huge, which surprised the witnesses.

What did Mr Brittle do with the mammoth skeleton? He donated all of it to the University for further research.
