Remains of 60th mammoth found in Hot Springs; Mammoth Site could hold as many as 100
Daily Journal ^ | July 10, 2011 | none listed

The Mammoth Site in Hot Springs recently yielded the remains of a 60th mammoth, the giant, extinct creatures that once roamed the continent.

[just a teaser--AP story]

Slightly misleading, as the count is based on tusks, so it could actually bwe more than 60. What was actually discovered this week was tusk #119, meaning that remains of at least 60 mammoths have been found in the former sink hole.

Mammoth Site's website.

A very unfriendly place for families. The kids really wanted to see. And we did, last April. Called them as to their hours-—10 AM to 6 PM. Arrived 4:25 PM—CLOSED!

Called again and left a message: Could we come at 10 AM next morning? Sent an email. NO reply. Arrived 10 AM next day. CLOSED!

The walkway signs/exhibits suggest they have an evolutionist perspective, but are trying to tread carefully.

Can’t imagine why they are trying to make a profit and so obnoxious to travelers.

Does nobody realize they can identify the location (state) the report is about by typing in two additional letters, and maybe a comma?

Who cares. Send every reader off to search and see how many “Hot Springs” locations there are that google knows about.

What happened to journalism? It used to be a profession.

My daughter worked there last summer in the bone pit, the lab and the gift shop.

This summer she dug 1,200 year old human remains a 12,000 feet in Peru.

Who knows what bones she’ll be digging next year!

That's why whenever I post a story, no matter whether the abbreviation is in the dateline or not, I always post the state in the key words.

To your larger question, professional journalism has been replaced with “folksy journalism”, and has had added the twin banes of Advocacy Journalism and “citizen journalism”.

All three are more interested in conveying viewpoint and ‘narrative’, rather than clearly, concisely and coherently transmitting information.

All these Mammoths ending up dead in the same place? I guess back in the caveman days they used "Mammoths heading over the Cliff" instead of Lemmings. The cavemen may still use the phrase.

They cannot clone them because it is now illegal to make a poor animal stay in a cage at a zoo.

I guess there's only one Hot Springs in the minds of some.

Oh how cool! When I was a little girl, if people asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up I’d say “paleoanthropologist!” Graphic design didn’t turn out to be nearly as interesting.

The scientists are already in process of clonging mammoths. It was reported here in a post some time ago. Soon herds of them will be roaming the US again.

The scary part will come when it is discovered that there IS “race memory” that is carried down through generations by DNA.

Then verily Arksansas will tremble as herds of mammoths returen to the legendary Mammoth Graveyard and find the bones of their ancestros have been disturbed.

Oh Woe! The paleontologists have doomed us to a terribel vengeance.

It’ll be interesting to see the result, but of course, there are problems with mammoth DNA, and the other half of the critter will be from a living elephant.

Does anyone know the date of this mass death site? If it is around 12 to 13 thousand years ago, then SC should post the Firestone book again.

"Does anyone know the date of this mass death site?"

The link on post #1 makes it sound like this was a natural trap and the mammoths died over a long period of time, not suddenly at once.

Ah, but once they get DNA cells, will stem cell regeneration be far behind?

We’re doomed I tell you, doomed!

They did find at least one ancestor of RINO McCain: a cave bear.

Sigh. I know most FReepers don’t actually read articles before posting; why would I even begin to think anyone would look at the KEYWORDS?

The article begins with "HOT SPRINGS, S.D. — The number of mammoths found in Hot Springs has reached 60...". I'm pretty sure that "S.D." thingie was supposed to be a clue.

Actually I do look at Keywords.

Unfortunately, like most a lot of FReepers now, my eyes aren't as young as my body thinks it is.

Sometimes my STOO-PID medication makes my eyes blur early in the day, sometimes not until early evening. And when that happens seeing tiny fonts are near impossible. But eventually the eyes will blur each day.

Too bad that “S.D. thingie” did not appear in the teaser.
