If it is being preserved in a glacier, as it says in the next to last paragraph, why are they thawing it out with a fire hose?

 

They used water to extract it from the permafrost. Once free of the permafrost they moved it to a glacial ice cave so that it would refreeze, thereby preventing it from decomposing until they can stabilize the remains.

Good thing them things are extinct and not roaming around North America!  Hope they aren't thinking of trying to resurrect it using its DNA in a modern rhino, like has been proposed for wooly mammoths!  Got enough problems with traffic from Denver west up I-70! :o:P

There actually was a movie called "Iceman" back in 1984 starring Timothy Hutton along the same lines. A caveman was found frozen and revived, and of course the movie became a Jurassic Park-style clash between the ancient world and the modern one. It actually was a pretty interesting movie.

I'd like to see the mammoth or wooly rino's in my woods. It would give me a real reason to make full house loads for my Sharps! :D
