Mammoth comeback is possible say experts

THE woolly mammoth could be brought back from extinction using sperm extracted from animals encased in ice.
The idea would be to inject mammoth sperm, assuming it could be retrieved, into the eggs of female elephants.
A successful pregnancy would produce the closest thing possible to a living woolly mammoth, the result of crossing one of the extinct animals with a close modern-day relative.
