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."
