It appears that a Woolly Mammoth has been found on a Lima Township farm.

According to the son of the farm owner, on Wednesday, his father and a neighbor were out digging a waterline when they found what appeared to be a bone and then a little later, what appeared to be pelvic bone.

A call was placed to Daniel Fisher at University of Michigan and he came out to investigate.

Thursday, Fisher and a crew of folks dug down further and came up with a number of assorted bones that they believe belong to a Woolly Mammoth.

The mammoth is believed to have lived about 10,000 years ago, was about 13 feet long and weighed about 5-7 tons.
