Hang on a minute, let me see if I understand: According to the Florida Museum of Natural History, there are only two recorded mammoth fossil sites in Lee County (according to The News-Press).

The City of Cape Coral plans to donate the alleged fossil to the Cape Coral Historical Museum.

So, such a finding is relegated to our local quasi-museum? And not to a more prominent organization for investigation/research?

Is it verified that the finding is truly a "woolly mammoth or mastodon bone"?

Who says? The local "news media"? The city's unnamed public information officer? The local cape coral newspaper that has a significantly low subscription rate and free delivery to some driveways in cape coral?

Just asking...
