Woolly Mammoth (Wally)
Designer: Don Foulds
When Built: July 6, 1981
It is a replica of the woolly mammoth that was unearthed in this area October 17, 1964 by a scraper blade during road construction. The mammoth bones were determined to be about 12,000 years old.
That is me in the second picture. The monument was restored in 2001.
It was dedicated by the Kinsemen club of Kyle.
