Elk Hunter Stumbles Across Plesiosaur
Invariably the sheer number of hunters hitting the great outdoors uncovers some unusual items every fall. This fall a Montana elk hunter was lucky enough to stumble across the fossil remains of a carnivore from 75 million years ago.
The Daily Mail has a story about David Bradt and his unusual find.
David Bradt, who was hunting elk, stumbled on the largely intact fossilised remains of a plesiosaur in Charles M. Russell National Wildlife Refuge, in Montana, U.S. Mr Bradt, who manages a guest ranch in Montana's Bitterroot Valley, said: 'At first I didn't realise what I was looking at. 'Then I realised it wasn't just an interesting piece of rock, I was looking at a rib. I was awestruck.'
