Battle over smuggled dinosaur bones

October 18, 2012

A Florida man was arrested Oct. 17 for smuggling stolen dinosaur bones into the U.S. from Mongolia and China and selling them for up to $1.1 million, according to federal officials. This dinosaur, a relative of Tyrannosaurus rex, is now the subject of legal battle over whether or not it can be sold in the U.S. The president of Mongolia says it was almost certainly smuggled out of the country.
