Tusk Found
Workers remove a plastic tarp Wednesday, Feb. 12, 2014, over the area at a construction site in Seattle where what is believed to be an ice age mammoth tusk was discovered on Tuesday. Work pouring cement at the site was continuing, but workers blocked off the area where the tusk was found. Paleontologists from the University of Washington hope to move the tusk to a museum on campus. (AP Photo/Ted S. Warren)
