Dinosaur Thieves, or… So Much Crime in the Desert!

Dinosaur Thieves, or… So Much Crime in the Desert!

In 2005, on one of our off-road Jeep trails in Moab (gateway to the sublime American desert), we found ourselves within view of newly revealed baby dinosaur fossils that a severe flush flood had snatched out of a Navajo sandstone stone wall (which broke in boulders as it fell from the 500-ft. cliff at the notorious Switchbacks). National park rangers were there marking the spot until the archaeology dept. from BLM arrived. i remember the feeling of actually laying eyes, among the very first who did, on this little critter of such value.
Five days ago, another dinosaur footprint, not far from that area, and also in Moab, was stolen. So, taking the high road and following the scientific method, I repeat the medieval curse of the following article to the thieves. Thank you for reading. :o)
