The Ghost Mammoth was a ghostly animal said to have been sighted in September of 2009 by a woman named Jill O'Brien. As Jill prepared to take one particular photo of Mount St. Elias, she heard what she described to me as “thudding” and “crunching” on the ground, and coming from somewhere behind her. Her first, terrifying thought was “bear.” Thankfully, it was not. Jill found herself confronted by a very small mammoth, one that was somewhere in the region of four-feet in height, or maybe slightly bigger. (mysteriousuniverse.org) The mammoth reportedly then raced past her and disappeared into a cloud of black smoke.

Established in 1980 by Alaska’s National Interest Lands Conservation Act, Wrangell-St. Elias National Park and Preserve is the largest US National Park and covers in excess of 13 million acres. It was at the base of the park’s Mount St. Elias, which stands to a height of 18,009 feet, that Jill’s extraordinary encounter occurred.
As of yet, there are no notable accounts that we could find other than Jill's.
- The entire encounter lasted barely a handful of seconds at most.
