Mammoth remains found in southern Hungary

The remains of a mammoth have been found near the town of Zok in southern Hungary, an expert from the institute of geography at the University of Pecs said Wednesday.

"The skull, a 150-centimetre (60-inch) piece of tusk and several of the animal's teeth were found on a hill covered with vineyards," national news agency MTI quoted Gyula Konrad as saying.

The original MTI (Hungarian News Agency Corporation) report is here (the news is only an hour old so I guess there'll be more later).
