    A Mammoth Mistake

    | Alaska, USA | Extra Stupid

    (The gift shop I work in has many ivory jewelry and sculpture pieces. The ivory is from woolly mammoths that used to roam Alaska.)

    Customer: “Where does the woolly mammoth ivory come from?”

    Me: “The tusks are collected on the northern tundra by Alaskan Natives. The Natives carve the ivory and then sell it to us.”

    Customer: “I think it’s so great that people aren’t allowed to hunt the mammoths anymore! I hate hunters!”
