Mammoth tusk discovered in Seattle gets a name
SEATTLE — The Burke Museum threw a party Friday night to announce the naming of the mammoth tusk that was discovered by construction workers digging at a site in South Lake Union in February.
A contest was held — and there were two winners.
There was “Lucky” submitted by a young girl named Zoe — and “L-U” for Lake Union, submitted by Claudia Graef.
The museum took the first two letters of Lucky, combined it with LU and came up with the name — Lu-Lu.
Scientists say the mammoth roamed this area about 20,000 years ago.
