The discovery suggests that humans hunted mammoths more actively than was previously thought.
Mexico wasn’t always a blistering-hot sunshine destination. Woolly mammoths once roamed the area around Mexico City some 15,000 years ago — and early humans were hot on their trail.
Archeologists have discovered the bones of at least 14 mammoths in two ancient hunting pits north of Mexico City, where it’s believed that humans trapped the elephant-like beasts for food in prehistoric times. The discovery suggests that humans were more eager to capture, kill and eat mammoths than researchers previously thought.
