The elk from Tåderup

An exhausted and injured elk bull sank to the bottom of a lake at Tåderup on Falster 8700 years ago. Its skeleton was found in a peat bog in 1922. Between the bones lay a broken bone point, which may have been used in the hunt. A large-toothed harpoon was later found in the same peat bog.
