    Link: Was A Woolly Mammoth Spotted In Siberia? - It lurches through waters in a sighting a paranormal investigator thinks could prove mammoths are not extinct after all.

    Why are these videos always so blurry and shaky? Also one would think that if you saw a mammoth crossing a river you wouldn`t stop filming halfway through. You`d do anything possible to get a closer look.

    I obtained a still photo of this, it is a little blurry, but you can clearly see it is a mammoth.

    If it`s not shopped; probably a bad film of an elephant which some idiot thinks was filmed in Siberia, because there`s obviously no forests with rivers running though them anywhere in Africa or southern Asia. No, not even lots.

    It`s the Sun, so it`s possible this wasn`t even filmed in Siberia. Also note the steep muddy banks of the river, could just be a mud covered asian elephant. Woolly mammoths were known for their larges tusks as well, don`t see them in this video.

    They think it`s a woolly mammoth because of the color? I was looking for the giant non-existent tusks on the elephant. o_o

    It would had lifted its` trunk over the river.
    It`s just a bear holding on to a big stick, and someone else got their hands on the video and put it up as a mammoth.

    I`m not gonna say this is definitely a mammoth, but it`s clearly entirely the wrong shape to be a bear, with or without a "fish". The slope of the back and comparative size/shape of the head are completely wrong, and judging by the waveforms on the river, it would have to be the biggest bear ever recorded (bigger by far even than the extinct Cave Bear).
    If it is indeed a genuine video (ie - not a CG`d fake), then the shape & motion would be about right for a small female mammoth. The coniferous forestry places the location well north of areas where any other elephant species are found, and the colouring closely matches frozen remnants which are still regularly found in the Siberian permafrost.
    Cryptozoologists have been recording reports of extant mammoths in several remote areas of Siberia since the field was initiated, so one or two small isolated populations wouldn`t really be all that surprising, from a certain perpective.

    However, I do think it`s more than a little suspicious that the only source I can find for the video is The Sun. Even all the other versions of the video that I could find were just straight reposts of The Sun`s video. It doesn`t really seem like the sort of thing a Sun journo would be smart enough to have faked this well, but without some more info about the alleged source this is a little dificult to swallow.
