Mammoth bones unearthed at Oregon State’s Reser Stadium

You remember that creepy story Kathy Bates’s character told Michael Oher in “The Blind Side” about the professor being buried underneath Neyland Stadium? Well, a story not exactly like, but pretty similar to that one has occurred in Corvallis.

It was reported that the construction at Oregon State’s Reser Stadium has been abruptly halted after bones were found buried in the north endzone of the football field. It was later determined that they were the bones of a wooly mammoth, and other extinct animals, that roamed the area more than 10,000 years ago.

You could only imagine how some of these construction workers felt to find bones in the endzone. They were probably pretty creeped out, but some anthropology nuts at the university were pretty excited to hear the news.

For now, the construction at the stadium has been halted while the anthropology department investigates the field for possibly anymore fossils buried.
