Woolly Mammoths Alive and Well?
Yes folks. The woolly mammoth, that elephantine beast with flowing hair that last walked the Earth during the last Ice Age, could be making a comeback in the near future.

Schuster says it’s possible. If so, the future looks bright for all of those woolly mammoth enthusiasts out there. Seeing one lumber down Pollack Road would definitely be an interesting part of anyone’s day. On that note, the mammoth would likely be able to survive the frigid temperatures currently enveloping State College much better than you and I.
