Cavers recover ancient bear bones

"The remains of a bear believed to be up to 40,000 years old have been recovered from Scotland's longest cave, it has been disclosed.

The animal's skeleton was brought to the surface after a 12-year operation to unblock an entrance to where it lay.

It was found in 1995 by cave divers exploring the two mile-long stream cave Uamh an Claonaite in the network of caves at Assynt in Sutherland. "
