Just like the ice-age creature, the beast in the images has a red hairy coat and clearly-visible giant tusks.

With its trunk swinging from side to side, the creature's coat would match samples of preserved mammoth hair dug up from permafrost in frozen Russia.

The incredible footage was filmed by a government-employed engineer last summer in the Chukotka Autonomous Okrug region of Siberia. He was in the area to survey for a planned road.

Releasing the footage anonymously for the first time, the Russian national said he wanted to draw attention to the fact that woolly mammoths still exist in the vast unexplored wastes of Siberia.

Woolly mammoths roamed the Earth 10,000 years ago during the last Ice Age, although scientists believe the last of the animals died out 3,500 years ago. Video here (http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/newsvideo/weirdnewsvideo/9071531/Woolly-mammoth-caught-on-video-in-Siberia.html)

saw it...it looks fake, the water rushing up against the legs looks wrong, picture is too fuzzy and why didn't they wait for it to come up on land?

Good thing it was out of focus. I might have thought it looked like a bear with a fish in its mouth.

:p

I thought I just read an article where some nutbag was trying to clone one of these things. Maybe it worked.

Yeah that's what I say. In all these "sightings" no one ever follows the beast,
or the camera breaks, or the film was partially ruined in processing.....this looks
to me like a bear carrying a fish.

Siberian Brown Bear. Unless a mammoth breathes water, I'd think the 'trunk' would be up. It's a bear carrying a fish.

Hey, half of Siberia is unexplored. Who knows?

There could be some. Maybe even my favorite, the Dire Wolf, is still around.

most likely, but there have been reports of mamoths from far northern Russia. But were at the begining of the 20th century.

There have been a few reports from both Russia and Alaska of what might be a dire bear.
The eskimos called it The God Bear; also seven feet at the shoulder and said to run faster then a horse.
