Human "mammoth traps" found in Mexico

Recommended Posts

Eldorado

"At least 14 woolly mammoth skeletons have been uncovered in Mexico in traps built by humans about 15,000 years ago.

"The two pits in Tultepec north of Mexico City are the first mammoth traps to be discovered, officials say.

"Early hunters may have herded the elephant-sized mammals into the traps using torches and branches.

"The recent discovery of more than 800 mammoth bones could change our understanding of how early humans hunted the enormous animals."

Thanks for your hard work and the always interesting and sometimes humorous links you post for us. What do you think about the reports coming out of Fox Fake News that Bigfoot, who is a Republican by the way, is the one that made and set these traps? ;)

well, I presume it'd work on the same basis as a heffalump trap.

Columbian mammoth. Not woolly mammoth.  Woolly's lived in Northern North America.
