Live 'woolly mammoth' filmed in Siberia

Footage showing what is claimed to be a live mammoth crossing a river in Siberia has appeared online.

The video was taken in the Chukotka Autonomous Okrug region of Siberia by a government engineer. It is thought that the last live mammoths died out in around 1,650BC. "If surviving woolly mammoths were found in Siberia, it could run against Russia's plans to further develop and exploit the area's considerable resources," said paranormal writer Michael Cohen.

The video however has been subject to much skepticism, with many viewers commenting that it looks more like a bear crossing the river with a fish in its mouth.

"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."

I don't trust any story coming from The Sun newspaper, they always print utter garbage.

Hi Englishgent! Sorry it has taken me so long to get back here but my lap top as passed on the the great beyond and I have to borrow from my son his lap top..... I have looked at the video several times, this is a bear with a large fish. If it was a Wooly Mammoth, I would think that at some point it would take it's trunk out of the frigid water to take a breath and save it from freezing. You can see where the bear stops and the fish begins. Good to say hi to you again, I will have to find a laptop that I can afford so that I can come back for a daily visit! Have a very pleasant...

The fact they are even allowed to call it a newspaper while it is just a mere tabloid. Nice to see the case being solved. Most end up somewhere in the corner of the internet to return once every 5 years or so.

Thats no Woolly Mammoth! Bear with fish I reckon. It amazes me how the power of suggestion can cause you to believe something for a little while. I diddnt think "Bear with fish" untill I read the end credit. Now I look at it, its obvious.I still diddnt think it was a mammoth tho.

Its not real, the guy who filmed this name is Ludovic Petho. And he is not a engineer, hes a videographer and a writer and even he states that during filming he saw bears, deers and a sable but never saw a Woolly Mammoth. He wasn't even aware some used his video to produce a fake. The original video of the the river is actually on Youtube, minus the Woolly Mammoth.

Yes, and that video and links is back a page here. It's funny how people like Michael Cohen figure they can steal videos, then slap their useless copyright on them.

Maybe the mammoth is small because the oxygen levels are different to when they were first around? If I was the cameraman I would have followed it's furry butt. Unless it is a bear.

These people are still claiming that bear with the salmon is a mammoth?
