Archaeologists have said they have made the largest discovery of mammoth remains, with a trove of 800 bones from at least 14 of the extinct giants found in central Mexico. Noteworthy is the fact that the animals some 14,000 years ago, most likely due to man-made, are to be killed.
Researchers have worked at the site, near where President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador's government is building a new airport for Mexico City, for nearly 10 months, recovering 824 bones in the roughy 26-feet-deep pit.
Scientists previously thought humans "randomly" targeted mammoths trapped by environmental obstacles such as swamps. Furthermore, to elaborate on the background of the recent finding, the coordinator of Archaeology recalled the exploration three years ago in San Antonia where they found an nearly complete bone of one these mammoths, and it later led to the opening of Museum of Mamut, the same place where the conference was held. These finds showed that early humans hunted mammoths and only attacked them after the very big animal fell in the traps created by the humans. The herds grew, reproduced, died, were hunted.

The two pits in Tultepec north of Mexico City are the first mammoth traps to be discovered, officials say.
Archaeologists have recovered 824 bones from the pits in the neighborhood of Tultepec, just north of Mexico City.
The two pits were found on a site that's earmarked for use as a garbage dump. As a bone-us, the dig even uncovered remains of a horse and camel that have since vanished from the Americas.
