Deer crashes through Pa. carpet store

CASTLE SHANNON, Pa.

This deer wasn’t caught in the headlights. It was called on the carpet.

A Pittsburgh-area carpeting store has been cleaning up after the wild animal smashed into the store and ran amok Tuesday.

Jill Horvatic, an employee of Stout Carpeting in Castle Shannon, tells WPXI-TV that she hid while the animal ran around, crashing into displays and damaging other items.

Horvatic says, “I was shaking. I haven’t felt like that ever in my life. For 20 minutes, all I heard was banging and glass shattering. It was horrifying.”

Police were able to get the deer out of the store before anybody got hurt.

Mammoth skeleton found in France

PARIS

Archaeologists in France have unearthed a rather hairy fossil — a nearly complete skeleton of a mammoth.

The bones — thought to belong to a creature that roamed the Earth between 200,000 and 50,000 years ago — were discovered by accident during the excavation of an ancient Roman site 30 miles east of Paris.

It may be only the third remains of a long-haired woolly mammoth discovered in France in the past 150 years. Such discoveries are more common in Siberia.

Archaeologists will try to establish the circumstances of the long-tusked specimen’s death: if it drowned in the River Marne or was hunted by Neanderthal Man.

It was a French scientist, Georges Cuvier, who first identified the woolly mammoth in 1796.
