The skull of an Ice Age bison twice the size of modern bison is the latest fossil discovery coming out of Snowmass Village.

Scientists uncovered the 250-pound bison skull Saturday. The Denver Museum of Nature & Science, which is overseeing the excavation, says that when both horns were repositioned with the skull, the span of the horns was more than 6 feet.

Earlier bison specimens found at the fossil dig were smaller. Scientists have also found a Columbian mammoth, American mastodon and an Ice Age deer. The bones were first discovered last month by a construction crew.

The columbian was probably making a delivery when he got "offed" by the locals.......

'And this is just further proof that man has caused global warming leading to rampant reductions of growing conditions!'
