The Columbian Mammoth
Gracing Working Hypothesis for the Coyote Canyon Mammoth Site event is George Last as the presenter. Research shows that the Ice Age flood which occurred about 17,500 years ago, swept away the Columbian Mammoth and caused its death. On Lake Lewis' shoreline, the Columbian Mammoth was decomposed. Rabbits and rodents scavenged the mammoth and until it was partially weathered. Series of Ice Age floods arrived and buried the skeletal remains of the mammoth. These remains serve as evidence of ecological and climatic changes.
