The bones could be from an ice-age mammal such as a bison, but they will need to be closely examined, said Francois Therrien, a paleontologist with the museum.


Twice since the floodwaters receded, the bomb squad has been called out to the Weaselhead Natural Area on the southwest edge of Calgary, historically the site of military training exercises.

It would be nice if the flooding unearthed a hidden treasure that could be used to pay for all the reconstruction.
