Fisherman snags real big one

RYE, N.H. (AP) - A New Hampshire fisherman has discovered whale vertebrae, porpoise skulls and an old fuel tank that he thought was a treasure chest. Now, he may have hit the big time: a possible mammoth tooth. Mike Anderson, of Rye, was fishing for scallops near Rye Harbor, N.H., on Tuesday when he noticed a 6-inch, triangular object. Will Clyde, a University of New Hampshire associate professor of geology, says it may be a fossilized mammoth tooth. He says mammoth and mastodon bones have been dragged up before in nearby waters, although they're more commonly found in the western and southern parts of the country. He wants to take a closer look.
