    'Woolly mammoth' spotted in Siberia

    A BEAST lurches through icy waters in a sighting a paranormal investigator thinks could prove woolly mammoths are not extinct after all.
    The animal thought to have mostly died out roughly 4,000 years ago was apparently filmed wading through a river in the freezing wilds of Siberia.

    The jaw-dropping footage was caught by a government-employed engineer last summer in the Chukotka Autonomous Okrug region of Siberia, it is claimed.

    To me it looks like either an elephant or two overweight emus standing close together.

    My 3 year old thinks it is a bear and thought it silly I would even ask what it was.

    The "trunk" appears to be a fish, so I think that is a large bear that has just caught a fish.

    I agree, either elephant (are there elephants in Siberia??) or a bear with a fish. Cool footage though!

    P.S. The footage looks like the filmer (is that a word?) was close enough that he should have been able to tell what it was with the naked eye.

    That water looks so cold and it's flowing so fast! That is no place I'd want to be, for sure.

    To me that looks like a bear carrying a large fish. If it's a woolly mammoth, where are the tusks?

    Could it be a baby mammoth with no tusks?

    Looks like a bear except for the fact that it's front legs were longer than it's back legs. Bear have shorter front legs (which is why they can't run downhill). It was pretty small to be a mammoth, but it could have been a baby. There have been other animals that were thought extinct that have popped up from time to time, so it's not out of the realm of possibility.
