Mammoths Among Us?

Do isolated enclaves of mammoths still roam hidden parts of the globe? Reports over the years (some more plausible than others) attest to this very fact.

It was a huge elephant with big white tusks, very curved; it was a dark chestnut colour as far as I could see.. It had fairly long hair on the hindquarters but it seemed much shorter on the front. I must say I had no idea that there were such big elephants. It had huge legs and moved very slowly. I've only seen elephants in pictures, but I must say that even from this distance (we were 3000 m apart) I could never have believed any beast could be so big.
