Woolly Mammoth Video Is A Big Hairy Mammoth Hoax

t's not exactly the boy who cried wolf - it might be more correct to call it the man who hollered woolly mammoth.

It appears that a story last week about a hairy, woolly mammoth seen walking across a Siberian river is a hoax.

In the opening frame of the blurry video that went viral, an animal is seen moving through the Kitoy River. Superimposed over the video are the words: Siberian Mammoth, Copyright Michael Cohen/Barcroft Media

That's where the controversy and accusations began to fly.

    Now if (when?) scientists start cloning the mammoth, we might start seeing them for real. So it could happen -- just not today.

    Grainy videos are fun, not evidence.

    This particular video was a complete hoax, however. Not mistaken identity.

    The "bear with fish" animation seems to have been literally added to a video of an empty river, software used to "shake" and blur the video as if it was being handheld, and then the guy went on to make money from this hoax... which was his latest mistake.

    Interesting prospect, given the discovery of the frozen baby mannoth some years back! I wonder where it will end?

    I wouldn't expect to see those creatures today. They all got snap-frozen, many of them standing up, 4400 years ago. The real mystery is why anything survived that disaster, not why some animals survived while others did not.

    Long distance, grainy footage, poor lighting and a touch of fog too... it may as well be a film of Big Foot doing ET.
