A Farmer Was Working His Land When He Spotted Something In The Dirt. So He Dug. What He Found? WOW!


It was a regular day for James Bristle from Michigan as he was working on his farm. But then he suddenly saw something strange sticking out of the dirt. His world was about to change. With a colleague, James started digging up the object. They quickly realized, this was no stick. This was bone.


It would be the discovery of ribs, followed by a skull, vertebrae and tusks that would certify their find as that of a wooly mammoth which dates back thousands of years.

Since this was clearly a major find, he realized the experts needed to be called on in. University of Michigan paleontologists arrived and determined the bones could potentially date back 15,000 years! This indeed would make it a significant discovery. Likely the most significant in recent times.
The excavation was completed by Dan Fisher. The mammoth find they are going to name Bristle Mammoth after the farmer who originally discovered it. Apparently it is one of the top ten most significant finds in the entire history of the state!

No date yet has been determined as far as the mammoth’s exact age, but they have estimated that it is likely a hybrid between a wooly mammoth and a Columbian mammoth.
The farmer is donating the remains to the university. He wants everyone to enjoy seeing this very rare and majorly significant skeleton. A real class act gesture for Bristle to make.

Bristle stated the following on his decision to donate:
“I’d like it to go to a place where more people can see it and we can learn more about history from it. Really it’s just the right thing to do.”
Be sure to share this incredible discovery with friends and family!
