The Great Dinosaur Heist of 2009, Part II

By May 26, 2009

Follow me on:

What is it with English people and dinosaurs? Back in March, a group of drunken college students from Dorchester were caught trying to make off with a 20-foot-long Triceratops. Now, according to Cranswick Today, thieves have made off with dozens of valuable artifacts from Dinostar, "Yorkshire's only dinosaur visitor attraction." The haul includes genuine teeth and rib bones, artificial skulls and claws, a bunch of fossilized beetles and, yes, a few coprolites (fossilized dinosaur poop to you and me). More news on paleontological shenanigans in the UK as the situation develops!

The paleontology world is losing great dinosaur discoveries at an alarming rate. These are an important link to our past and should be left alone.
