Mammoth bones cause stir in Aspen

SNOWMASS VILLAGE, Colo. (AP) - Officials in Snowmass Village want experts to take control of the site where the bones of a woolly mammoth were found earlier this month.

Directors of the town's water district voted unanimously Monday to pursue a formal agreement with the Denver Museum of Nature and Science. They want the museum to be responsible for the fenced-off area where the bones were discovered during a construction project and to take charge of an exhibit of some of the bones.

The bones were put on display for three days last week and water district manager Kit Hamby tells The Aspen Times that over 1,000 adults and children came to see them.

Hamby says district workers are so busy showing off bones they can't do their regular jobs.
