More Mammoth bones found


Scientists have apparently found more mammoth bones at a site in Mahaska County.  The scientists returned to the site this past weekend to continue their search for more bones of the large creatures that roamed earth millions of years ago.

The Oskaloosa Herald reports while sifting through dirt last weekend, scientists found another mammoth bone.  Researcher Homes Semken said the bone showed evidence of fractures and was either a leg or an arm.

Researches returned to the site last Saturday to clean out dirt and debris that accumulated over the winter at the site.
