RESEARCHERS FROM the University of Washington's Burke Museum step around a fossilized mammoth tusk that was found earlier earlier this week in Seattle. In the crowded south Lake Union neighborhood where workers go out for espresso, an ice age mammoth died 10,000 years ago and remained until a plumbing contractor crew uncovered its tusk. Paleontologists with the Burke Museum are working with the building contractor to remove the tusk.
