Is that a woolly mammoth caught on video?

A government worker in Siberia claims he filmed a woolly mammoth crossing a river last summer. Woolly mammoths have been extinct for about 10,000 years. The video is as grainy as those that purport to show Bigfoot. But, hey, it's the Internet. Let's let our imaginations run wild.

Still, British tabloid The Sun says it could actually be such a beast. Well, the "paranormal writer" the paper quoted says that.

Paranormal writer Michael Cohen said: "Rumours of a handful of mammoths still kicking around in the vast wilderness of Siberia have been circulating for decades and occasionally sightings by locals have occurred.

"Siberia is an enormous territory and much of it remains completely unexplored and untouched by humans. "

Fraud. Woolly would cross the river NOT dragging trunk through the cold water. Last known mention of woollies was in the 1700's I think, when the last race of a minature woolly was extirpated in Siberia.

You know what's in siberia? Bears. You know what bears eat? Salmon. You know where salmon spawn in? Rivers. You know what that looks like? A bear eating a salmon in a river.
