Perot Museum of Nature and Science

The top local stories this evening from the KERA Newsroom:

For thousands of years, a nearly complete mammoth skeleton has been buried in a gravel pit about fifty miles south of Dallas. Wednesday, paleontologists are taking the last and largest section of the skeleton to the Perot Museum of Nature and Science. And Dr. Kent Brantly talks about the loneliness and humiliation that comes with Ebola.
