They don't propose, they observe that one of the bisons has bone growth over the pieces of extraterrestrial metal. It survived the impact.

Well, surely bone/tusks must be harder to penetrate than skin.

Just how much force is needed to penetrate a tusk? I suppose an elephant
is a suitable substitute...
