re: Mammoth meat



>From the book:
      Natural History.
      A Manual of Zoology for Schools, Colleges, and the General Reader.
      author: Sanborn Tenney, A.M.
      Eighth Edition.
      New York, Charles Scribner & Co.
      1872

      on pg 46 (with the elephants):

      "In both hemispheres the superficial deposits abound with skeletons
       and parts of skeletons of elephants which are now extinct. An elephant,
       covered with long, thick hair, and wholly unlike anything now living,
       was found encased in ice on the coast of Siberia. It was in such a 
       state of preservation that dogs fed upon the flesh, although it is
       probable that it had been there thousands of years."
