Transcript of Attack of the Mammoth

Summary
A woman was walking out to set up beaver nets and as she was walking she heard a large animal following her, in fear she dropped the meat she was carrying and ran back to the camp where her husband and child were. She tried to explain what just happened but he refused to listen. Later that night as her and her husband were laying near the fire she heard the noise again and tried to warn her husband, but her husband wouldn't listen and kicked her out of the camp because he thought it was nonsense. As she was walking away she could hear her husbands shouts and she knew he was dead. She continued walking and walked upon a tribe and warned them about the hungry mammoth. The tribe prepared knowing it would come so they poked holes in the ice sheet so the mammoth would fall through. Finally the mammoth came fell through the ice and was slain by the mighty shaman and his magical arrows.
