Rare Tusk Found

Fishermen who cast their net into a south Siberian river have dragged out a rare find: instead of fish, a huge mammoth tusk.


The tusk found on the Pokamas River in the Tyumen region weighed 50 kilograms, Itar-Tass said Thursday.


Fishermen presented the tusk to a local museum, where experts said the find was in good condition, Itar-Tass reported.
