re: Mammoth meat
>From the book:
A Manual of Zoology for Schools, Colleges, and the General Reader.
author: Sanborn Tenney, A.M.
New York, Charles Scribner & Co.
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."
