A Wisconsin farmer is seeking a six-figure deal for bones belonging to a 12,000-year-old mammoth. Experts say the skeleton in John Hebior's basement is the best mammoth specimen ever found in North America. It was dug out of his cornfield in 1994.

Chuck Quirmbach reports for Wisconsin Public Radio.
