SEATTLE -- A bone dated from the Ice Age has been found in South Lake Union.
Burke Museum paleontologists were called to investigate something unearthed by construction workers.
Paleontologists just released a statement saying they are confident it represents a tusk from an Ice Age mammoth.
The bone is on private property, so it’s up to the landowner to decide what to do with it.
Woolly mammoths went extinct thousands of years ago, but were prevalent in a region stretching from Siberia to North America.
