Tamron EF-mount lens won't fit on EOS Rebel XT

Hi everyone, I'm new to photography (classes pending) and I'm new here so I apologize if I'm posting in the wrong place. I've got a Canon EOS 350D/Digital Rebel XT. Someone gave me a Tamron 672D AF 75-300mm f/4-5.6 LD Tele Macro Lens Canon EF EOS. The camera has an EF/EF-S lens mount and I thought the lens was EF, but it doesn't even come close to fitting. Is there an adapter I can get or do I just take a free lens I can't use in stride?

"Is there an adapter I can get or do I just take a free lens I can't use in stride?"      

Depending on what exact mount this is (I think Brian is correct on it being for Nikon) AND if this is a lens that will work for an APS-C camera, there is probably an adapter that you could find at B&H.  Some are inexpensive, some are not.  Also, some lenses from different manufactures play nice with other brand cameras, some do not.  I have a handful of various adapters, and often use different old lenses.  Most end up being manual after mounting.  I am perfectly fine with manual focus.  Most people are not.

What I would do if I were in your shoes... take the lens to a local camera shop.  Ask if it is worth anything in trade for a lens that will work with your camera.  You might find a good discount on a new Canon EF-S lens... OR you might even find a nice used Canon lens.

Most of the Dodd Camera stores have a nice selection of quality used gear.  I'm guessing as long as the lens you have is working, they will give you a trade in discount on a Canon new or used lens.
